Thanks!  It's working now, I had NO_BUILD=YES right after do-install, I moved that up on the Makefile and all is good.

You have to use the shell command direct after a make target

Please post your Makefile or the relevant snippet with some more relevant lines.

working example:
	@(cd ....)
.for ...

non working example:
.for ...
	@(cd ...)

Hope this helps.
