package-name.mk (and maybe others) should check the existence of the variables it uses

Description

I got hit by this in bug 540585.
comm-central (for example) uses a +/- separate configure+autoconf set-up which may not define the needed variables.

Not a big deal, but it would surely help to get explicit error messages rather than "unexplained" failures.
It looks like  package-name.mk  does this now
