Error building man pages

during my routine check for strings to update, I encountered that the
man pages are currently not buildable (at least on stable):

in the autoreconf step I see:
man/Makefile.am:3: PO4A_V_$(V: non-POSIX variable name
man/Makefile.am:4: PO4A_V_$(AM_DEFAULT_VERBOSITY: non-POSIX variable name
man/Makefile.am:7: PO4A_RM_V_$(V: non-POSIX variable name
man/Makefile.am:8: PO4A_RM_V_$(AM_DEFAULT_VERBOSITY: non-POSIX variable name
scripts/Makefile.am:143: `%'-style pattern rules are a GNU make extension
scripts/Makefile.am:174: wildcard $(srcdir: non-POSIX variable name
scripts/Makefile.am:174: (probably a GNU make extension)
Makefile.am: installing `./INSTALL'

When I then try to build the man pages (after ./configure) I get:
helge@remaxp:/tmp/dpkg$ make -C man update-po
make: Entering directory `/tmp/dpkg/man'
Makefile:193: *** Rekursive Variable »PO4A_V_« referenziert sich (schließlich) selbst.  Schluss.
make: Leaving directory `/tmp/dpkg/man'

(Translation: Recursive variable "PO4A_V_" (finally) references itself. Done.

Is this a know issue (on stable)?
