[racket-dev] Racket head fails to compile

If I grab racket HEAD and try to compile it with:
git clone ... racket.git
cd racket/racket/src
mkdir build
cd build
../configure --prefix=...
make -j16

I get:
make[6]: Entering directory 
gcc  -O0 -g3 -c ../../../racket/gc/alloc.c
gcc  -O0 -g3 -c ../../../racket/gc/reclaim.c
gcc  -O0 -g3 -c ../../../racket/gc/allchblk.c
../../../racket/gc/alloc.c:19:30: fatal error: private/gc_priv.h: No 
such file or directory
  # include "private/gc_priv.h"

gc/ has an include/private directory so I would have expected the 
command line to gcc to be something like:
gcc  -O0 -g3 -c ../../../racket/gc/alloc.c -Iinclude/

Also, when I try simply:

I get:

make[6]: Entering directory 
rm -f mach_dep.o
./if_mach SPARC SOLARIS gcc  -c -o mach_dep2.o 
make[6]: ./if_mach: Command not found
make[6]: *** [mach_dep.o] Error 127

The if_mach script exists in racket/gc but not in the build/racket/gc so 
I guess somewhere there needs to be a copy of the script onto the build 
directory. I am curious how you guys usually do the build if not like
