ld is not complaining about a missing file.

The problem is with the version of ld you use. Some versions are using
ld --oformat and other versions ld -oformat

This is quite a recent issue. So check the version of you linker.

You can solve the problem changing :
./arch/i386/boot/Makefile: $(LD) -Ttext 0x0 -s -oformat binary -o $@ $<
to --oformat

I think you hav not done any mistake, but the latest Debian (unstable) version
of ld seems not to be right.

I think this will works.

Best Regards
