 Dunno, the version of Make hasn't changed in quite a long time, so you
appear to be doing _something_ unusual (you can read that as "nobody
else ever reported that problem, as far as I can remember").  Certainly,
it passes all the tests for me from a variety of different hosts.

 Now that seems to be normal!  My log from what I thought was going to
be LFS-6.1 shows the exact same thing, followed closely by the install,
so I guess the build returned a status of zero despite this (odd, but
I'm past caring about that).
