hugehelp.c is where hugehelp is defined, and it's in your link line above, so
there must have been a problem compiling it. If you have perl installed
on your system, you can delete src/hugehelp.c and it will be regenerated
and recompiled when you next do a make. There aren't any compile-time
options in hugehelp.c so I don't see why it isn't giving you the hugehelp
symbol unless a previous compile crashed in the middle of compiling it.
If it happens again, send us use the output as it compiles hugehelp.c
