It should be okay... from the make manpage:

     If the first or first two characters of the command line are `@' and/or
     `-', the command is treated specially.  A `@' causes the command not to
     be echoed before it is executed.  A `-' causes any non-zero exit status
     of the command line to be ignored.

And "make distrib-dirs" works for me...
