i thought it sounded strange too, so i looked it up. from collins

        awhile: "Awhile" means for a short time. It is more commonly
        spelled `a while', which is considered more correct, especially
        in British English.

so i don;t think there's anything wrong with it, as such. having said
that, it's written in the context of a make build. i wonder whether the
author really wanted to suggest a short time ;)
