The line numbering is off.  Although it _says_ it's complaining about line 
247, it's actually complaining about line 249, which is:

include $(patsubst %,%/,$(SRC_DIRS))

If I comment that out, it then says "No rule to make target 
`/root/scripts/config/Makefile', needed by `scripts/config/Makefile'.

P.S.  Either way it still tries to run the "h;y/[a-z]/[A-Z]/" thing 
through /bin/sh instead of sed.  This doesn't appear to be a sed problem, but 
a make problem.

Probably a good idea.  It's reasonable for "make clean" to depend on 
your .config to work right, but make distclean shouldn't.

Never bet against the cheap plastic solution.
