Dunno about the SUS, but they're certainly not portable.  AFAIK,
they're specific to GNU make.  (Which is to say, I know they were
invented in gmake; my only uncertainty is that a few other make
variants might have picked them up.)

When I came back around from the dark side, there in front of me would
be the landing area where the crew was, and the Earth, all in the view
of my window. I couldn't help but think that there in front of me was
all of humanity, except me.
