Are you using the nightly build?  If so, that path is where the build
happens, so it's probably a result of some bad macro that expands to
the path.  As seen in the last flood of PRs, the build should
eventually be completely free of such hard-wired paths, and IIRC, all
3rd-party packaging systems will barf on seeing them.
