The message is confusing, granted, but all that is happening is that 
coastlines_europe-111004.osm.pbf is being treated as a map to compile.
The coastline file is the empty string because no argument was given.

So when it says:

  coastlines_europe-111004.osm.pbf: Coastline file  not found

It means while processing the map 'coastlines_europe-111004.osm.pbf', 
the coastline file '' was not found.
