This is my fault. The makefile is looking for v1.2.1, wich is a minor evolution
of v1.2.0 (some connectors added, one little bug fixed). I have not tested
v1.2.1 yet but want to order protos next week.
I fix the makefile when i get home tonight.

We have stoped building PCBs at home, mostly because we wanted solder mask and
platted holes. I really don't recommend to etch a v1.2 at home - use a v1.1 if
you really want to etch it at home. Best solution is to order from a PBC maker
I had the fisrt pannels from eurocircuits for about 20 euros each.

Thank you , and I'm very glad that you're getting in.
Good luck
