"make check" fails:

Seems the latter is expected to fail (and it did in 2.7 already), so just looking into the former (which did not happen in 2.7).
Looking into tests/create-delete.log shows:
* patch -p1 -b < p.diff || echo status: $?
patching file target
File target is not empty after patch; not deleting
status: 1
The next patch would empty out the file target,
which is already empty!  Assume -R? [n]
Apply anyway? [n]
Skipping patch.
* test -e target
* test -e target.orig

These tests seem to have been added/changed between 2.7 and 2.7.1

I'm not sure where and how to fix it?

Bye, Jojo
