checked out latest code from github and compiling.

I was getting same error on master branch, so I was trying to compile with
v2.6.1. Thanks for pointing out my mistake.

Now I switched to v2.6.1 with 'git checkout tags/v2.6.1', still make fails
with same error. (I've attached make terminal output).

My environment:
