Run it from the directory that contains the files responsible to build
the external module. i.e. in your case from the "moz" directory.

Sorry for that - indeed you have to use "make cmd cmd='real command''"

yes, you're on the right track - you just did run it from the toplevel
directory instead of the module-directory.
so "make cmd cmd="cd moz ; dmake patch" should definitely work (I'm no
longer sure whether it also words when using cd moz; make cmd
cmd="dmake patch" - but one of the two definitely should .-)
