I've seen a chain of problems, most of which I was able to work around
- issues with lint flags, other make issues which I needed to hand
coax, etc, etc.

The current failure is:

## Starting images
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `)', needed by
make[2]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make[1]: *** [images] Error 2
make: *** [images-only] Error 2

A re-pull a few days ago didn't help matters, but I can try another
re-pull & rebuild, given that everyone is pretty sure that this should

Will let you know how I get on,
