Hi :)

I think we are happy to look at patches to support non-GNU make but
without follow-through from a reporter we aren't going to make efforts
in this direction; too many other things to do :)

If you can track down the issue, please let us know and we'll see what
we can do.  Mark, Ludo, feel free to re-open if you feel like this is
not the right way to go about things.
