gmake-4.2.90 regression (error message missing)

Good morning.

Certian implementations of posix_spawn return 0 on failure and then
exit the child process with 127. I observed this with older glibc
(2.12) and on aix.

This results in gmake not printing related error message "no such
file" or "permission denied" when the command is missing or not
executable. This also causes multiple tests to fail.

$ echo 'all: ; @./foo' > /tmp/1.mk
$ ./make-4.2.90  -f /tmp/1.mk
make-4.2.90: *** [/tmp/1.mk;1: all] Error 127
$ ./make.patched  -f /tmp/1.mk
make.patched: ./foo: No such file or directory
make.patched: *** [/tmp/1.mk;1: all] Error 127

This patch executes posix_spawnp at configuration time and then
disables posix_spawn if posix_spawn returns 0 on an attempt to exec a
missing file.
This solution won't work for cross compilation.

regards, Dmitry
