Well, this error message:

comes from these lines in the top level Makefile:

u-boot:         depend $(SUBDIRS) $(OBJS) $(LIBS) $(LDSCRIPT)
                UNDEF_SYM=`$(OBJDUMP) -x $(LIBS) |sed  -n -e 's/.*\(__u_boot_cmd_.*\)/-u\1/p'|sort|uniq`;\    
                $(LD) $(LDFLAGS) $$UNDEF_SYM $(OBJS) \
                        --start-group $(LIBS) $(PLATFORM_LIBS) --end-group \
                        -Map u-boot.map -o u-boot

Seems either your "objdump" and/or your  "sed"  create  bogus  or  at
least  unexpected  output.  You  may  want to check the parts of this
pipeline step by step.

Best regards,
