Yep, there was a bug in the libc (in the dirent function), which make
used (could be worked around), but anyway, this bug was fixed in
libc5.2.12-18 somewhere. Basically, the unintended behavior if the
dirent function of the libc, which make exploited was changed, braking
make (arguably make was already broken, but so was the libc so ...).
