Problem building Linux Profile for volatility

I am using volatilty to analyze memory dumps and I am having issues in building a linux profile. Getting the following error when making the dwarf file. Any help would be appreciated

make -C //lib/modules/3.5.0-17-generic/build CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO=y M= modules

That looks like a Makefile problem. Have you reported anything to the developers about it? Did you change anything to the source code before compiling it? If so, it might be worthwhile starting over with a clean slate.
