I believe this is a duplicate of bug #39934 (or that is a duplicate of this), which is fixed for the next release.

In the new CVS code we get a different error, related to readdir failing. I believe this is a duplicate of another bug, where GNU make mismanages file descriptors related to the jobserver in some situations.
