I've found out, what's going wrong. In the "install" make target, in extras/
posix/Makefile, there is  a stale "posix_workarounds.o":

.PHONY: install
install: posix_workarounds.o
        $(MMC) --make lib$(TARGET).install

As you've written, posix_workarounds.[hc] has been removed, but here it is 
still being mentioned.

It doesn't build, because posix_workarounds.[hc] are missing, that's what I 
meant to say.
