This is a harmless side effect of using "&&" in conjuction with test(1).
It's "normal" for the way the Makefile is written in those directories.
(Changing these to `if' statements would remove these messages.)

Some of the mtree input files conflict with each other. Again, this is

... usually because /usr/obj is a file or a symlink. This is not an
error for the build process, even though mtree exits with 2 because it
couldn't do everything it was asked.
