Thanks for noticing this!

As far as I can tell, this annoying error message is harmless.
The script is executed everytime the Makefile is run, and the first
time the directories have not been created yet, so it fails. The second
time the Makefile is run (when doing the actual build), the script will
succeed silently.

It is too late for the rc2 release, but we will try to fix for the
final 17.0 release.

If anyone wants to fix it, patches are welcome.
