Bug#1215: texlib build ignoring errors

Package: texlib
Version: 1.0-3

While building texlib, I noticed that some errors were ignored,
possibly resulting in an incorrect Debian package:

-- Annotated log
	test -d ../texlib-1.0
	test root = "`whoami`"
	test -f stamp-build || make -f debian.rules build
	make[1]: Entering directory `/exp/build/zooi11/texlib-1.0'
	test -d ../texlib-1.0
	make[2]: Entering directory `/exp/build/zooi11/texlib-1.0'
	cd tex/tfm; make all
	make[3]: Entering directory `/exp/build/zooi11/texlib-1.0/tex/tfm'
	MakeTeXTFM cmbsy10
	Running MakeTeXPK cmbsy10
	/var/spool/texmf/fonts/tfm/cmbsy10.tfm already exists!
	cp /var/spool/texmf/fonts/tfm/cmbsy10.tfm .
The following error is explicitly ignored, and therefore probably not
a bug:
	MakeTeXTFM cmbsy5
	Running MakeTeXPK cmbsy5
	mf \mode:=nullmode; mag:=1; scrollmode; input cmbsy5 \</dev/null
	This is METAFONT, Version 2.71 (C version 6.1)
	kpathsea: Running MakeTeXMF cmbsy5.mf
	I don't know how to generate cmbsy5.mf!

	! I can't find file `cmbsy5.mf'.
	<*> ...=nullmode; mag:=1; scrollmode; input cmbsy5

	Please type another input file name:
	! Emergency stop.
	<*> ...=nullmode; mag:=1; scrollmode; input cmbsy5

	Transcript written on mfput.log.
	Metafont failed for some reason on cmbsy5.tfm
	cp /var/spool/texmf/fonts/tfm/cmbsy5.tfm .
	cp: /var/spool/texmf/fonts/tfm/cmbsy5.tfm: No such file or directory
	make[3]: [cmbsy5.tfm] Error 1 (ignored)
Here are two bugs at once: no TEXROOT is passed from debian.rules to Makefile,
and the resulting error doesn't cause Makefile to break.
	(cd /tex/plain; ln -sf ../hyphen/lthyphen.cfg hyphen.tex)
	/bin/sh: /tex/plain: No such file or directory
	dpkg --build `pwd`/debian-tmp
	dpkg-deb: building package `texlib' in `/exp/build/zooi11/texlib-1.0/debian-tmp.deb'.
	mv debian-tmp.deb ../texlib-1.0-3.deb

Suggestions: pass TEXROOT from debian.rules to Makefile, and add "&& exit 1"
to the "ln" line in Makefile.

destructive imaginations in order to ensure that when it comes to the crunch
it'll be someone else's bones which go crack and not their own.
