That is because in the debian package the have backported a change to
turn it in a worning:
make-dfsg (4.0-2) experimental; urgency=medium

  * Pull back some patches from upstream git that fix bugs. One of these
    converts the mixed implicit and explicit rule error into a warning,
    and that should give us a grace period to fix the Makefiles,

The make on fedora 21 does not have such a patch so it fails like the
officiale make 4.0 release.
