Looks like my problem was that during the build process the place of  
the CCL directory is looked up from the preferences.
I had the preference set from an earlier version of CCL and building  
the IDE from a different directory just
takes the old preference somewhen during build. I think that's kind of  
an error. During the build process it
should already been known where this particular instance of CCL is -  
no need to look it up from the preferences.
Also no trace of a warning that the preference and the current build  
directory is different.
