That's the expected result.
Per your immediately previous post, it seems the issue was some
incompatibility with a specific (non-GNU) make. Instead of commenting
the offending portion of the makefile, we could (expanding on
Stephen's suggestion) make it
ifneq ($(strip $(PACKAGES)),)
for p in $(PACKAGES); \
gunzip -c $(srcdir)/$$p.tar.gz | (cd $(PKGDIR) ; tar xf -); \
(cd $(PKGDIR)/$$p ; umask 02 ; PYTHONPATH=$(PYTHONLIBDIR)
$(PYTHON) $(SETUPCMD)); \
however, the ifneq ... endif is a GNU make construct and that itself
may not work in non-GNU makes.
