  There's a bug on line 278 of your makefile.  You just need to fix it and
everything will work fine.




  Nahh, seriously, an example or some details would be nice.  Did you use
"-k" when invoking make?  Are the command-lines prefixed with "-" to
suppress errors?  Are you mistaken about whether the earlier rule actually
does return non-zero status?  It's pretty hard to diagnose a problem when
the only information you give is "It doesn't work - why?"!  Can you show us
an example, with the relevant lines of your makefile and the output you see
in your shell when building?

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
