I had a make loop a week or so ago, and it had to do with includes :-)

My problem was that I got an error (a missing directory lib/libossaudio if
I remember correctly) and it restarted of some unknown reason. It had done
make includes 20-30 times when I noticed it. When I had fetch libossaudio
all worked as expected.
