failed to create dist targets

Hi everyone,

So I got all my code up and running and now I want to make a file so I can
use my library in another computer. Now, when I try to make dist-zip, I get:

address@hidden/Documents/workspace/cpputils$make dist-all
{ test ! -d "-cpputils--0.001" || { find "-cpputils--0.001" -type d ! -perm
-200 -exec chmod u+w {} ';' && rm -fr "-cpputils--0.001"; }; }
test -d "-cpputils--0.001" || mkdir "-cpputils--0.001"
mkdir: illegal option -- c
usage: mkdir [-pv] [-m mode] directory ...
make: *** [distdir] Error 64

It's trying to make a directory that starts with a hyphen. Is this a bug?
Can I get around this and indicate that I don't want the filename of the
directory to start with a hyphen?

Thank you all
