Use case:

A lot of Debian package maintainers are going to do 'svn export;
debuild', and 99+% of the time, debuild is going to invoke "make".

It's not practical to build Debian packages within CVS or SVN checkouts,
because the former is littered with CVS/ directories and the latter with
.svn/ directories.
