Its not the issue with the disk space, I am sure of that.

On Windows, I was able to sucessfully build with out any issues (release only, haven't build with debug), and on Linux (3.3.0-4.fc16.i686) I was able to build clientAndServer release succesfully, but when I tried to build with  clientAndServer debug I ended up with below error, I am missing any config which is needed for debug build.

You didn't happen to run out of disk space during the compile did you?

We do not yet have full platform support, nor are all parts of the old build converted (but then we fall back on the old build system), and there are likely to be bugs. Most of all, we need to have exposure on a wide range of different build systems, since the reality is always so much messier than you'd want to believe. :-) Please help us to resolve such issues early by trying the new build system!
