Of course, the "GNU Bourne-Again SHell", bash.  How could I use another
leading brand?  I mean GNU makefile mode should work with the GNU shell...

It turns out that make uses the value of the SHELL macro, which defaults
to "/bin/sh" (not the SHELL environment variable -- oops).

My point was that the fontification of commands in a Makefile depends on
their syntax, which is determined by SHELL.  And that is not necessarily
the same for all Makefiles.  Perhaps Makefile mode should be
parameterized for different shells, like Shell Script mode is.
