I get your point, but we are talking about different things. This is 
what is in the release tarball:

'pascal.install: pascal.install-normal pascal.install-compiler; @true'

This is what is in the git version:

'pascal.install: pascal.install-normal pascal.install-compiler
	echo "pascal.install done" ; @true'

Seems to me that these lines are not the same?
