make bin-dist fails with the following error

mv: cannot move `/tmp/my_dist/' to a subdirectory of itself, `/tmp/my_dist/mysql-7.0.10-linux-x86_64'

How to repeat:
$ ./configure --prefix=/
$ make bin-dist

issue being the following code in scripts/make_binary_distribution.sh around line 278:

  # ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  # Rename top directory, and set DEST to the new directory
  # ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  mv $BASE@prefix@ $BASE/$NEW_NAME
