make distdir fails

Can anyone confirm that `make dist` (subtarget `distdir`) fails on a clean
build of hg id 1e54d9aba433? It fails on two openSUSE 42.3 systems for me.
The output is:

make dist
make  dist-lzip dist-xz dist-gzip am__post_remove_distdir='@:'
make[1]: Entering directory '/workspace/octave/build/default'
  GEN      ChangeLog
if test -d "octave-4.3.0+"; then find "octave-4.3.0+" -type d ! -perm -200
-exec chmod u+w {} ';' && rm -rf "octave-4.3.0+" || { sleep 5 && rm -rf
"octave-4.3.0+"; }; else :; fi
test -d "octave-4.3.0+" || mkdir "octave-4.3.0+"

make[1]: execvp: /bin/sh: Argument list too long

Makefile:26483: recipe for target 'distdir' failed

make[1]: *** [distdir] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory '/workspace/octave/build/default'
Makefile:26583: recipe for target 'dist' failed
make: *** [dist] Error 2

I highlighted that actual problems with newlines. It seems that either an
update of my systems causes this argument list being too long, or a change
of the build system, that I cannot identify yet.

Running `make` and `make install` works fine.

Thank you,
