Hunspell probably breaks build on macOS

Dear all,

since LO 6.1.2 I'm unable to build the application. Probably this is caused by upgrading hunspell from 1.6.0 to 1.6.2. Build breaks with following error message:

config.status: executing depfiles commands
config.status: error: in `/Volumes/DTA/Build/LibreOffice/6-1-2/workdir/UnpackedTarball/hunspell':
config.status: error: Something went wrong bootstrapping makefile fragments
    for automatic dependency tracking.  Try re-running configure with the
    '--disable-dependency-tracking' option to at least be able to build
     the package (albeit without support for automatic dependency tracking).

Setting configure option "--disable-dependency-tracking" has no effect. I'm building on macOS 10.11.6 (El Capitan).

Any help is appreciated.

May thanks in advance,
