Hi Ralf,

Thanks for your comments.

The point is to help people writing portable Makefiles.
Portable Makefiles are one of the goals of Automake.

This is a warning, not an error.  You can enable it with -Wportability
and disable it with -Wno-portability (either can be set in AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS
as one of the test case shows).  Is this enough?
