That tells me that it must be running, not crashing.

I was mistaken.

You wrote that the file contains "unknown" not "Unversioned directory"; I
misread that earlier. In this case, yes, it is crashing. The "unknown" is
produced by the makefile if all else fails. The OR logic is also the reason
why 'make' doesn't quit at this point.

I am not at my computer right now so I cannot test why this is failing. It
might have something to do with order of operations. I'll investigate
further...

Thanks for your report...
