I don't think Automake needs to bother with the difference of alpha or
beta build systems at all until we get to the point where somebody
proposes that Automake also output rules suitable for a suitable beta
build system.  Or, and that is what I would prefer, somebody implements
a beta build system that parses, as much as possible, Posix or GNU
makefiles.  Because then Automake wouldn't have to change anything.  :-)
