I guess, you are looking at the wrong files or outdated documentation ;)

There are no "makefile"s in rtems-4.7.0 nor is RTEMS_MAKEFILE_PATH being

Basically, building RTEMS boils down to this:

[make sure to have the required infrastructure installed]

# tar xjf rtems-4.7.0.tar.bz2
# mkdir BUILD
# cd BUILD
# ../rtems-4.7.0/configure --target=arm-rtems4.7
# make

or (instead of make)
# make RTEMS_BSP=
# make RTEMS_BSP=<desired BSP>
