It is also commonly reviled. I _also_ build tools under
SVR4/5. There is an excellent development tool set that
includes a Posix compliant make facility. It is completely
fine as a build tool. I do not _want_ to have to use special
makes just because someone finds it a tiny bit easier to
use GNU bells and whistles. Please, minimize interdependencies!!
Thank you. :-)
