I've been trying to build GNU mailutils for Debian inside
svn-buildpackage, which copies the source to a build area using the
debian version as the path. Debian version had been until now
"20031103-1", for example. Now, it's something like "1:0.4+20031231-1",
and make doesn't like this, due to the colon in the path.

Alfred Szmidt has written a small testcase for this, which is attached.

BSD make doesn't choke on this small makefile, while GNU make does fail.
