What version of make do you have. It works fine for me with GNU Make 4.1.

Also, since Mailman 2.1.13, the settings for EMAILPKG, JACODECSPKG and
KOCODECSPKG and hence for PACKAGES are always empty if the underlying
Python on the system running configure has email>=2.5.8 and iso-2022-jp
and euc-kr codecs in its library which is true of Python since 2.4, and
this is the first I've heard of this issue.
