Yes it did but now that I looked at the logs more carefully it failed
because both wget *and* clone failed, the latter was due to DNS lookup
failure, most likely some sort of intermittent error since it didn't
happen on a subsequent build this morning.
But (as you said below) we should be able to fetch the file that the
Makefile references. (I didn't realize it was never put up there because
presumably git clone worked until the DNS hiccup here).
