Your pathnames are too long. make does some variable expansion of the
buildpaths that then exceed the initial limit and that then causes

I'm not sure whether native win-make has more relaxed path limits -
but very likely not by a big margin.

So you need to use shorter paths.

I use /home/buildslave/source/libo-core for the sources and
/home/buildslave/tb for the build
