I'm trying to create a package following:

When I do
make -j1 V=99 package/hellowold/compile

I get:

make[3]: Entering directory
Makefile:48: *** DESCRIPTION:= is obsolete, use
Package/PKG_NAME/description.  Stop.

The Makefile is at:
Notice, that DESCRIPTION:= is unset, thus the warning appears to be false.

It seems, that the DESCRIPTION is set during the built, causing the error.

When removing the check, the makefile seems to in into an endless recursion:

shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access
parent directories: No such file or directory
make: getcwd: No such file or directory
make[153]: Entering directory

I quit after 153 tries, ending the loop.

What may be wrong here?
