Yes, this came up during 1.4.2 builds, the solution I went with was to
change what directories we build in. I think your patch will cause side
effects on other ports, although I'm not sure.

The rule I used for 1.4.2 was:

.ifndef UPDATE
        cd ${.CURDIR}/../distrib/macppc/floppies && ${MAKE} clean
        cd ${.CURDIR}/../distrib/notes && ${MAKE} clean
        cd ${.CURDIR}/../distrib/macppc/floppies && \
                ${MAKE} depend && ${MAKE} ${_J} && ${MAKE} release
        cp ${.CURDIR}/../sys/arch/macppc/stand/ofwboot/ofwboot.elf \
        cd ${.CURDIR}/../distrib/notes && && ${MAKE} && ${MAKE} release

I will try to find a better solution soon. As it happens, I needed this
tonight, as I have just hit the same failure that you did :)
