It's returning 1.  The documentation for system() and wait() tells you
how to get the real exit code from the value returned by system().
if (WIFSIGNALED(value))
  make was killed by WTERMSIG(value)
else if (WIFSTOPPED(value)) /* can't happen for system() */
  make was stopped by WSTOPSIG(value)
else /* WIFEXITED(value) */
  make exited with status WEXITSTATUS(value)
