Bug#961851: make-dfsg breaks cross-toolchain-base autopkgtest: debian/kernelarch.make:5: *** empty variable name


Source: make-dfsg, cross-toolchain-base
Control: found -1 make-dfsg/4.3-1
Control: found -1 cross-toolchain-base/45

Dear maintainer(s),

With a recent upload of make-dfsg the autopkgtest of
cross-toolchain-base fails in testing when that autopkgtest is run with
the binary packages of make-dfsg from unstable. It passes when run with
only packages from testing. In tabular form:

                       pass            fail
make-dfsg              from testing    4.3-1
cross-toolchain-base   from testing    45
all others             from testing    from testing

I copied some of the output at the bottom of this report.

Currently this regression is blocking the migration of make-dfsg to
testing [1]. Due to the nature of this issue, I filed this bug report
against both packages. Can you please investigate the situation and
reassign the bug to the right package?
