Makefile File not found


I'm having a lot of trouble with a Makefile I am trying to make. I think it is a basic principles issue. When I try to make, I get the error a

buildfiles/bin/serial.o file not found error

And I have gone over this code multiple times. Based on the compiler, I believe the way I reference .cpp files into .o files is correct. Also the way I reference the dependencies is correct. I am trying to do this so that the gloab variables in global.cpp can be included in other files. They are externed in global.h. My makefile is as follows:

SRC_DIR = exospheres/src
INC_DIR = exospheres/include
BIN_OBJ_DIR = buildfiles/bin


CPPFLAGS     += -Wno-deprecated
CXXFLAGS     += -Wno-deprecated

INCLUDES     +=    -I$(INC_DIR) \

SENSORS                 =     $(SRC_DIR)/serial.cpp

CONTROL                    =        $(SRC_DIR)/ABVCtrl.cpp \
                                        $(SRC_DIR)/ABVstate.cpp \
                                        $(SRC_DIR)/ABV.cpp \
                                        $(SRC_DIR)/global.cpp \

SOURCES_cpp            =     $(SENSORS) \
                                        $(CONTROL) \

OBJECTS_CONTROL       =     $(SOURCES_cpp:$(SRC_DIR)/%.cpp=$(BIN_OBJ_DIR)/%.o) 

$(BIN_OBJ_DIR)/abv:        $(OBJECTS_CONTROL)  
                            $(CXX) -o $@ $(CXXFLAGS) $^


.PHONY : clean
clean :

I have been struggling with this and am really stumped. This is code for a PC104 board.

The QCC tag indicates a C++ compile for my OS. It should be identical to any makefile other than that.

Thanks much,

Sorry for the double post-I'm really trying to get this resolved. Does anyone have any ideas for this?

xmkmf - create a Makefile from an Imakefile SYNOPSIS
xmkmf [ -a ] [ topdir [ curdir ] ] DESCRIPTION
The xmkmf command is the normal way to create a Makefile from an Imakefile shipped with third-party software. When invoked with no arguments in a directory containing an Imakefile, the imake program is run with arguments appropriate for your system (configured into xmkmf when X was built) and generates a Makefile. When invoked with the -a option, xmkmf builds the Makefile in the current directory, and then automatically executes ``make Makefiles'' (in case there are subdirectories), ``make includes'', and ``make depend'' for you. This is the normal way to configure software that is out- side the X Consortium build tree. If working inside the X Consortium build tree (unlikely unless you are an X developer, and even then this option is never really used), the topdir argument should be specified as the relative pathname from the current directory to the top of the build tree. Optionally, curdir may be specified as a relative pathname from the top of the build tree to the current directory. It is necessary to supply curdir if the current directory has subdirectories, or the Makefile will not be able to build the subdirectories. If a topdir is given, xmkmf assumes nothing is installed on your system and looks for files in the build tree instead of using the installed versions. SEE ALSO
