So mesa needs makedepend on the host. Running the one for the target
won't help. Do you have makedepend installed on your host?

You didn't paste enough for us to see if gen_matypes gets compiled for
the host or the target, but from the error message it looks like it's
for the target (which is wrong).

I'm pretty sure I compiled mesa3d for arm not that long ago, so it
seems to be an x86 specific issue.

I'll take a look at it this weekend.
