Oh, I see what you mean.

The "makefile" in that directory does not specify .h as a .SUFFIX. Adding that,
makes it work.

So FWIW, POSIX has a set of default .SUFFIXES, and .h isn't one of
them, whereas GNU make indeed does define it regardless of
POSIXLY_CORRECT being set in the environment.

However, it works with the vendor's make for: Solaris, AIX, HPUX, Tru64. Given the statements in this thread, it is apparent that none of those conform to POSIX either, making NetBSD's the sole conforming implementation.

sarcasm aside, I suspect that the reason for the breakage is more mundane, e.g., a problem in NetBSD's handling of the variable $o in the suffixes line, making it go off on a tangent someplace.
