Adding a filename to firmware/SOURCES causes the error:

error: sysfont.h: No such file or directory

if the file by that filename is non-existant. This a misleading build error as it does not show the true cause of the problem. Instead, it should probably report the name of the non-existant file.
This task depends upon

hmmm I had this in the past and I thought it was fixed back then...

edit: it was fixed and then reverted. This is the revert (according to Bagder)
