Configuring u-boot to recompile from scratch

I was a little too fast with my success story. I now got a version  
where I can configure.

* there is a script called "build" which conflicts with the directory  
"build" that configure wants to create
* if I rename the build script, configure fails

... cut cut cut ...

Note: moving to "origin/stable" which isn't a local branch
If you want to create a new branch from this checkout, you may do so
(now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:
   git checkout -b <new_branch_name>
HEAD is now at 57f7a42... U-Boot: Update for reading inodes on ext2fs

When looking into the build directory that was created by the  
Makefile, there is no build/board/neo1973/gta02 subdirectory.
The build directory only contains:

goldelico:u-boot hns$ ls -l build
total 0
drwxr-xr-x  3 hns  hns  306 25 Aug 21:25 include
drwxr-xr-x  2 hns  hns  102 25 Aug 21:25 include2
goldelico:u-boot hns$

Any ideas? Maybe "origin/stable" is outdated?
