Well, it's bound to be happening before the first "No rule to make
target ... Dir.make" error, and after the last time that a Makefile
which included Dir.make worked.
Yor original list of errors starts with:
make: *** No rule to make target `../include/Make/Dir.make'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/wattemp/GRASS/grass-6.3.0/sites'
which implies that it's been deleted by the time that the "sites"
directory is built. The directory before that is "scripts"; does that
build okay, or do you get errors?

That's highly unlikely.

Redirect the "make" output to a file:
make >& build.log
and send it to me.
