IMHO the problem rather is that now there isn't any matching file while

Given Matwey's Makefile rule ...

for file in *.ctx; \
do (cd $(CTXDIR); $(LN) ../applic/$$PCK/etc/$$file $$file;) \

Constuct fails due to wrong / changed glob options in shell,
or "missing file" handling in "ln", please add test for $file:

for file in *.ctx; do test -e "$file" && \
(cd $(CTXDIR); $(LN) ../applic/$$PCK/etc/$$file $$file;) \

Maybe 'test -s "$file"' would be even better.

"make" (here most likely GNU make) and shell opts like each other
similar to cats and dogs.

Such traps are hell to find, and easy to create.
