I have just done the following:

cp -a /t/texlive/Build/source.development /build/s.d
chmod -R +w /build/s.d
cd /build/s.d
touch x
./configure; cd TeX/texk/web2c; make; make distclean
find TeX/texk/web2c -newer x

and it displayed TeX/texk/web2c/cwebboot.c. Then, I touched TeX/texk/web2c/cwebboot.c and retried:

rm -rf /build/XX
mkdir /build/XX; cd /build/XX
cd texk/web2c; make

Then, it worked.

Seems like the timestamp of cwebboot.c is important. Change #2772 touches the file.
