No, it means that configure found suitable email and Korean and
Japanese codecs packages in the installed Python and thus didn't need
to install the ones that ship with Mailman.

That is a perfectly acceptable workaround, but the question is why
doesn't your make properly handle
for p in ; do ... ; done
and treat it effectively as a no-op when the for list is empty?
