I believe you changed the meaning of the -m flag so it now requires a 
pathname to the src tree and not src/etc.  This breaks existing usage.  
In the PR I filed there was a follow-on patch from Bjoern that amended 
my suggestion to instead add a -M option to set the source tree.  I 
thought that was an improvement over my hack.  In lieu of that you might 
want to examine the pathname supplied to -m to try to provide backwards 
compatibility by stripping any /etc suffix on the path.
