library/clock bug in make-3.79

  I believe I have found a bug in version 3.79 of gmake.
I ftp'd the src files from the ftp mirror site at 

I have attached a small gzipped tarfile which illustrates
the problem.  you should be able to cd into the lib/
directory and just type "make".

I am trying to build a library, and it appears that make 
has no problem with the first file, but then has a problem 
when it tries to add the second file to the library -- it 
complains that the nonexistent file in the library has a 
clock time in the future (in the year 2010) -- the message 
I get is:

make[1]: *** Warning: File 
modification time in the future (2010-02-22 13:41:28.709551616 > 2000-12-08 
make[1]: warning:  Clock skew detected.  Your build may be incomplete.

This works fine with make version 3.77, so it would appear to 
be a feature of 3.79.  As suggested, I have included the config.h
file generated in the installation process (also in the lib 
directory).  Also, I am running on a Solaris platform.

Please let me know if there is anything else you need from me.
