Until this patch is in official release, you can put the code inside the if into a separate file and use include to workaround this bug...

Need to install a new set of conditionals inside the eval. This means that, just like include, you cannot open a conditional but not close it within an $(eval ...) call.

Patch included.

Using $(eval ...) inside a conditional (that is parsed) will cause an error like this:

Makefile:10: *** missing `endif'. Stop.
