        Thanks, I found the typo myself not long after sending the
        original email.  But there is a patch for eval in savannah,
        which is not in the 3.80 official release that was also
        tripping me up.  Debian/unstable has it (my home box), but the
        RedHat machines I use at work need the patch for eval to work

        This seems to me like an important enough of a fix to warrant
        a new release of GNU make.  Would you agree?

        Thanks for your help and for such an excellent make feature.
        Its a huge win to be able to write small, reusable, generic
