The makepatch target makes the patches in FILESDIR.

should it not make them in PATCHDIR?

they are defined by default to be the same thing:

PATCHDIR?=              ${MASTERDIR}/files
FILESDIR?=              ${MASTERDIR}/files

but it would seem to make more sense to have them appear in PATCHDIR 
if it's set differently.
