[Nut-upsdev] Strange regression on FreeBSD buildslave regarding HP-UX scripts

For reasons unrelated to NUT, I upgraded my FreeBSD-x86 buildslave machine from 9.1 to 10.0. This involved rebuilding the whole ports tree, but no other (intentional) changes were made.

Now, I get this error:

 (cd scripts && make  top_distdir=../nut- distdir=../nut- \
     am__remove_distdir=: am__skip_length_check=: am__skip_mode_fix=: distdir)
make[4]: don't know how to make HP-UX/nut-drvctl.sh. Stop

Reference: http://buildbot.networkupstools.org/public/nut/builders/FreeBSD-x86/builds/146/steps/compile/logs/stdio

Some of the HP-UX scripts predate the SVN /and/ CVS conversion. As such, I don't have a lot to go on, other than "it just worked before".

Does this ring a bell with anyone?

I suspect that some of this will magically go away if I update that directory to have a Makefile.am rather than a plain Makefile. If I do that, are there any HP-UX users out there who can test this for me?
