The 'test -f makefile' prevents 'configure' from overwriting Makefile on
case-insensitive filesystems. So on these systems one needs a
GNU-compatible 'make'.

I didn't think it worth the trouble to work around the problem of using
a 'make' that isn't GNU-compatible on a filesystem that isn't
POSIX-compatible. If someone wants to take the extra trouble to address
that issue then more power to them. I am still of the opinion that this
whole thing is a mistake and that we should stick with what Emacs 25 and
26 do, as that's simpler and will avoid problems such as the one you
