Weird issue with the build system

Everyone, am not sure If i happened to chance upon a bug in bitbake, but
I am having a weird issue with the build system. First some packages
proceed to 'do_install' without passing through the 'do_compile' stage.
This eventually leads to a,
| make[1]: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.
| make[1]: Leaving directory
| FATAL: oe_runmake failed

Pulseaudio being an example as such..Now this is where something strange
happens, When I do a make clean-package-pulseaudio and proceed with make
NOTE: package pulseaudio-0.9.6-r5: task do_qa_configure: completed
NOTE: package pulseaudio-0.9.6: completed
NOTE: Running task 1645 of 3456 (ID:
1507, /home/sudharsh/Projects/openmoko/openembedded/packages/pulseaudio/, do_compile)
NOTE: package pulseaudio-0.9.6: started
NOTE: package pulseaudio-0.9.6-r5: task do_compile: started
The last line was no there in the previous case. Is this a known problem
and would love to have insights on this. Lot of packages have this
problem on my box. I am running Gentoo on unstable arch.
