It shouldn't, but it does...sometimes.  You can take care of it by
changing all references to "bin/circle" in Makefile to "bin/"
and add something like this after the while statement in autorun:

  if [-r bin/]; then
    mv bin/ /bin/circle

You can also move circle to circle.old if you've got the hard drive space,
which will let you debug a core when you've compiled.
