Still, be aware of the fact that there are two different directories
that have to do with the build process: BF_BUILDDIR, which by default
points to ../build/<platformname>. This directory does NOT contain a
full, working install of Blender, it's an intermediate directory, and
BF_INSTALLDIR, which by default points to ../install/<platformname>.
This directory is where you should run Blender from. It contains
everything you need.

>From your older messages I see that you are running blender from a
directory with the name 'build' in it, suggesting that you're running
blender from the BF_BUILDDIR
