whether the login shell is bash or tcsh makes no difference.
The sub directories
are not created by any shell script. They contain the XeTeX and
xdv2pdf sources. Sources are not usually 'made,' they have to be
written ('programmed') and often need a compilation. All configure
does is to create the necessary Makefile's and a libtool script to
build the binaries (programmes). Then the build-xetex script does cd
into lib's sub directories and makes the default targets. They are
prerequisites to xetex and xdv2pdf. After this it changes working
directory to Work/texk/web2c and makes xetex there. The final step on
Mac OS X is to cd to Work/texk/xdv2pdf to make xdv2pdf there.
Since make never was invoked with the -k option it finishes its duty
when it comes to the first error. This does not prevent the build-
xetex script to try to finally ls the PRODUCTS it could have built:
Work/texk/web2c/xetex plus Work/texk/xdv2pdf/xdv2pdf and Work/texk/
xdv2pdf/T1Wrap on Darwin.
A blizzard is when it snows sideways.
