OK, so it is best just to use `make` for casual users that just want to compile sources. I was just curious if I am missing something :)

I wrote make update for myself, some years ago, to help with syncing tex4ht dev and tl. I don't expect anyone else to be using it. I promise nothing about it, including whether it will keep existing.

Anyway, I don't see the error offhand. The line number is misleading. Have to divide and conquer the update target to see where the problem is, and I can't do that now. I'll get to it eventually, or if someone else cares and gets to it first, great.

I've got a report that the `make update` command is broken. It fails with this message:

Makefile:572: *** unterminated variable reference. Stop.

I don't even remember what is `make update` good for, and I don't see any problem on line 572, so I hope someone understands it better.
