In my environment, yes. It failed every time I tried with each new
Debian release since 2.22.0-2. Here is my build history:

For this package, my environment is made of self-hosted KVM machines
with a single CPU. Maybe having a single CPU makes the bug
particularly easy to trigger, but being a Makefile bug, it could
happen to anybody.

Please tell me if you need a test machine and I'll try to prepare one,
but as I said before, maybe it would be more productive to try to
explain how the error I got could happen (for example: It is true, as
the error says, that there is not any rule to build
