This is a little odd... 'make' exits non-zero when doing 'make

This bit looks like the cause:

Yup, it does; didn't spot that. But...

(do you have "/usr/bin/posix" in your shell's search path?)

...no I don't.

$ which -a sh
$ ll /usr/bin/sh
-r-xr-xr-x 2 bin bin 544232 Aug  8  2002 /usr/bin/sh

So unless this is some weird HPUX thing I'm not sure where /usr/bin/posix/sh came from. Anyway, to me that looks like a fluke since 'make check' shouldn't be doing anything in 'man', yes? IOW this one can be safely ignored?
