make source-check is _supposed_ to download all sources, regardless of
whether or not the package exists locally. Keep in mind that it is ment
to check if packages and patches are (still) downloadable or not and
explicitely disregarding any local stuff to simulate what users will

Perhaps the source-check target should consequently use a
$(DL_DIR).check dir then. This would avoid breakage elsewhere.

Apart from that such a "log" target strikes me as unwarranted.
$ (make) 2>&1 >& MY.log
$ nohup make &

would a more sensible thing to do, IMHO.
