I haven't committed anything, but I did send a replacement function
to this set of recipients yesterday that tries to make this change.

Alessandro sent an alternative later that I haven't looked at yet.

I'd really prefer to avoid delaying the release.  Please, concentrate on
making sure that the port behaves correctly, it will build properly,
etc.  If the only issue is that some of the regression tests don't run
properly due to system differences I probably wouldn't want to hold the
release just for that, as long as we understand what breaks and more or
less why (enough to know it's a test suite problem rather than a problem
with make itself).
