www/opera-devel was removed a few days ago, as there isn't currently a
development version of Opera. Probably in that directory you only have a
README.html file which does not exist on cvsup but only on install CDROM
and of course make has no Makefile to get its instructions from. So
delete the hole dir and you will be OK.
