Thanks, Fadi! I've applied most of the patch and could build and install
it fine. I'm not sure about the change to SEP - I don't really understand
the nested subst expression. The problem is that any change to defaults.make
and rules.make has to be tested with all platforms, so I try to be
careful modifying things there.
