Good catch, thanks. I'd rather address the problem in the top Makefile:
there's no point in including prog/dump in the list of source
directories if we won't build anything there. So I'd suggest something

ifneq (,$(findstring $(MACHINE), i386 i486 i586 i686 x86_64))
SRCDIRS += prog/dump

in the top Makefile. Then you can even remove the architecture tests
in prog/dump/Module.mk, as they will be redundant, and clean up that
file a bit.
