Can't remember if it made a difference but when I had similar
problems (avoiding full builds cross platform) I switched to
the Mozilla 'mach' build script. It's documented everywhere and
might do a few things that the yaml scripts using plain old make(1)
don't pay attention to.

  $HOME/devel/tor-browser.git$ ./mach build

...might need to set CONFIGURE_ARGS too. Good luck.
