Hmm, while this is correct it doesn't really error out here:

( cd /home/peko/source/buildroot/output-bash/build/bash-4.4/examples/loadables && /usr/bin/make -j --jobserver-fds=3,4 --no-print-directory DESTDIR=/home/peko/source/buildroot/output-bash/target install )
make[3]: *** No rule to make target 'install-', needed by 'install'.  Stop.
Makefile:793: recipe for target 'install' failed
make[2]: [install] Error 2 (ignored)
rm -f /home/peko/source/buildroot/output-bash/target/bin/bashbug

So that probably explains why it doesn't fail in the autobuilders.

Does it really fail the build for you?

Have you looked into why SHOBJ_STATUS doesn't get expanded correctly,
and if this can fixed more nicely upstream / is already fixed?
