I can't remember how it used to work but the way it works now is that the build.sh lives in the source directory.  configure generates a build control file that is put into the build directory but the script is not changed.

Using this should work:

cd obj
../../src/make-4.3/configure --prefix=$PREFIX && ../../src/make-4.3/build.sh && ./make install

I'll leave this open as an enhancement, to copy the script into the build directory for ease-of-use.

Not sure if this is a known issue, but this seems to be a regression from make-4.2

When attempting to configure and build from an empty objects directory, build.sh script is not populated by the configure script, hence the following command fails:

cd obj
../../src/make-4.3/configure --prefix=$PREFIX && ./build.sh && ./make install
