I think I figured out why, but I'm still working out how to fix it.

cfg.mk is included _before_ maint.mk.  Therefore, $_sc_search_regexp) is
expanded in cfg.mk prior to the place where maint.mk provides a default
definition for $(exclude), so we are getting the wrong thing expanded,
which breaks the syntax check rule in cfg.mk.

I'll get something working, hopefully later today.
