Did you run 'make realclean' before building?  If we have a missing dependency 
and you're using a version of pbc_to_exe.pir from before the immutable strings 
branch merge, you'll see this behavior.  You can probably test this easily by 
removing pbc_to_exe* from the root of the build directory and trying to build 
parrot-nqp again.
