No, it's an internal make error. I don't see how it could be an ar issue. I'll try to repro it again.

Unfortunately still the same error:

Maybe the problem is with ar? I am going to test the issue on another system with different binutils.

Last but not least, it would be great to know the meaning of this warning.

Can you please test with the current release candidate build and see if you still see the issue? I cannot reproduce it.

I am not able to reproduce this with the current latest version from Git:

I want to add that the Make 3.81 doesn't have this warning.

Makefile is attached.

Assume that the prerequisite foo.vhd exists in the directory. (to create it just "touch foo.vhd")

If I run 'make' for the first time, everything is ok, but second time I get:

make: module_timestamps/lib(foo): Field 'name' not cached:

make: module_timestamps/lib(foo): Field 'hname' not cached:

Although it is a warning, in case compiling many files, it pollutes the output that relevant information about the errors cannot be seen.

I see this warning also on the development version.
