You are trying to build with 3.0.1..  Stop.

The exact same revision can indeed build itself (after all that's what
happens during "make all" anyway), but the makefile can't differentiate the
revision. For it 3.0.1 of revision A is the same as 3.0.1 of revision B.
Thus we only check for the version and there for the previous release. This
specific case would thus be a valid reason to use the
OVERRIDEVERSIONCHECK=1 parameter that you'll need to pass to make then.
