Erroneus error message or what?

For information: I compile both lilypond-dev and fontforge from git
sources, situated in /usr/local/src and the executables in
/usr/local/bin/ - (in debian testing, not ubuntu).

Lately, building lilypond, I have occationally encountered a strange

ERROR: Please install required programs:  /usr/local/bin/fontforge >=
20110222 (installed: 3ec845c4fe718af4908ce2dc25b66d0594930)

BUT: There IS installed a version of fontforge (with the quoted hash, at
the specified location, and it is definitely newer than 2011:

Interestingly; if I ignore the error message, and just continue
building, using the error-message-prone version of fontforge, lilypond
compiles and installs without errors.

In the long run this is an insecure situation. Can it be remedied?
