I don't think that make is responsible for editing it.

This will work, but isn't really the correct solution.  Firstly, you
need to understand that included files with "require" statement are
expected to complete with a non-zero status.  Currently the last
executable statement in "nocollib.pl" is  "$nlogclosetime = 0;".
Note, that this isn't the last statement, but all that is after it
is function definitions.  Previously this was "-1", and hence the
current problems.

The standard procedure for most included perl files is to include as
the last statement:


i.e. an unadorned, unassigned final value of "1".  Include this line
as the last thing in the nocollib.pl file and you won't have any
further problems.
