<http://www.clipx.net/ng/make4/ng5832.php> says Borland Make v4.0
supports the ${var} sytnax.  Do you know which versions of Borland
make don't support ${var}, and their release dates?

Yes, that seems to match the Microsoft nmake documentation.  I guess
Microsoft nmake is unsuitable for makefiles currently generated by
Autoconf.  However, I suspect the ${var} problem is only the tip of
the iceberg here; Microsoft didn't intend for its nmake to be
compatible with POSIX make (or with Lucent nmake, for that matter).
