Some versions of make don't bother using a shell to execute the
commands, they parse them themselves and call exec() directly.  In the
current development version of CVS, those lines have been modified to
start with "##" so they get deleted by automake rather than being copied
into and then Makefile, so nuking them is appropriate.  I
think the same problem also occurs in the doc subdirectory.
