It's good you brought this to our attention. In recent weeks several fpmake
related issues were mentioned, but only for more rarely used cases. Your
case demonstrates it in a much tested target, so probably something is up,
as Joost already identified.

Since branching hopefully will happen within a week, everything bug that can
be rooted out of the build system is welcome.

If I see Joost comments, the question partially becomes what is different in
your case. Some questions to get an idea:

1. Do you generally run   make distclean before svn update? 
2. To build and install a snapshot, do you run make and install in one
command or in two separate steps?
3. Any other special things you could tell us about your build routine?
