error in Makefile.inc1, cannot continue...

I ran into this problem last July doing a 5.1 > 5.2.1
upgrade, during each cvsup the Makefile.inc1 would be
re downloaded because after each cvsup, I corrected
the syntax   (using #edit)
   < 501101))
   < 501101 ))
in this case line 830,  in my case I think it was
line 137 iirc,
maybe someone should permanently comment that code:
# leave a space after the releasedir checking code
#  number and before the closing parenth PLEASE!!!

I had found the solution after much time searching
on the web...
