Splitting into two lines won't work, since that will change how the command works
if the directory exists.
Instead use:
        cd bogus-this-is-not-a-real-directory && ls -l

Hi Matt,

I find that the 'cd' command in this rule does not stop this make script:

        cd bogus-this-is-not-a-real-directory; ls -l
        @echo This is the 2nd cmd in the rule

You're actually executing two commands. And make is seeing the return
code from the ls -l.

So split it into two lines and it should fail if trying to cd into a
non-existance directory.
