Both really, but as you say, there's not much point maintaining a
standalone solution for something that's better off implemented in make

In fact, regardless of getting the patch to make 3.83, I'd rather opt 
for putting effort into the patch and not external wrapper. Makes little
difference delivering a prebuilt wrapper or a prebuilt make with build
system, or building either one as prerequisite.

I will try to allocate some time this week to properly read through your
patch, test it and possibly make the changes I proposed earlier. I'll
keep you updated.

Btw. any clues as to when make 3.83 might be released? 3.82 is
practically unusable due to the nasty memory corruption problem the 
unpatched release version has.
