I have no idea what nix-build does.  Are you sure it isn't the source
of the trouble?

The --disable-dependency-tracking switch is another suspect; why do
you use it?

ucs-normalize.el shouldn't be loaded in source form at this stage, it
should have been byte-compiled already.  My crystal balls says that it
doesn't appear in src/lisp.mk, most probably because you run a partial
build, where the rule that updates lisp.mk is somehow bypassed
(perhaps because of the --disable-dependency-tracking switch, or maybe
something else, like maybe nix-build, whatever that is, doesn't
faithfully emulate GNU Make, or doesn't run GNU Make if it's supposed

If nothing else helps, I suggest a "make bootstrap" from the shell
command line, and make sure your 'make' command is a GNU Make.
