Linux build fails in CentOS 8.1 with blender missing message in bin directory

After providing all dependencies and doing the git submodules configuration, blender building fails on CentOS 8.1 with the messages below. I redacted the name of the directory but it is my home directory as expected.

[100%] Built target buildinfoobj
[100%] Linking CXX executable ../../bin/blender
now run: "make install" to copy runtime files and scripts to 3.4
[100%] Built target blender
Install the project...

CMake Error at source/creator/cmake_install.cmake:220 (file):
  file INSTALL cannot find
  "/home/(directory name redacted)/blender-git/build_linux_headless/bin/blender": No such file or
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  cmake_install.cmake:51 (include)

The directory exists at the indicated path, but there is no file “blender” in this directory.

Here I was building a headless version with “make headless”, but the problem persists even if I do a regular “make” command.
