scripts/Configure bug, perhaps?

I did `make oldconfig' today on a 2.1.131 tree, running on a 2.1.129ac3

I got an error message (see below, look for the line starting
"scripts/Configure:"). Is the message anything to be worried about?
I.e., is it a kernel problem or a problem with the script?

Sorry I don't have more details.
