Ok, it was an easy fix. I added a trailing ";"

However, the makefiles for building the compiler, (and probably rtl) did 
not have a problem at all.

This happened during a full make (after a full "make clean")
So both compiler and rtl should have been build, before packages? 
fcl-web is then probably just the first package....

btw: isn't ";" a valid char in a unix pathname?
