OK.  etcupdate runs "make distribution" in the etc directory, but
it doesnt' know about obj dirs, so it ends up creating MAKEDEV in the source
directory.  It's also supposed to run "make clean", but there was a bug
involving quotation marks in the wrong place, as can be seen in your error

I have just fixed that bug in etcupdate, so it should now be better
at cleaning up after itself.
