This is not serious.
fjf explained that the scripts automatically remove core files if found.
Since there's the core directory and removing core is not done
recursively (-r) then rm does not remove (but display a rather
frightfull message) and neither fails.
It would probably be advisable to rename that directory, but not
Martin, are you sure that what's breking the build is that? Because I've
had no problems...
