Perhaps it was failing when thre's no lisp/Makefile, and that's why Eli
changed it.  Anyway, it's been like that for almost three years and half,
so perhaps there aren't developers doing that kind of dual-boot or
shared working copy development.  I'd suggest just removing the line and
waiting.  If someone barks, we can fix it later.
