I did a little further digging and it seems that this won't happen with
etch's version of make (3.81). However, if you use older version of make
(3.80), the build will crash with the error above.
Even though this won't be a problem for etch and beyond (sarge has
3.80), it would be nice if the cdbs makefiles would be compatible with
older versions of make.
I came across this problem when using Scratchbox, which is using the
sarge version of make.
