I've been getting consistent "Warning: file 'foo' has modification
time in the future" warnings from make 3.79.1.

A summary of my situation: we're using make 3.79.1 on Debian
GNU/Linux and compiling over NFS. The files make reads are reported as
being modified ~3 sec. in the future.

I'm assuming the real problem is simply due to clock skew between our
compilation machines and the NFS server; I don't know if there is
supposed to be a fix for this problem or not.

In searching for a solution to the problem, I came across a message[1]
that suggested upgrading to make 3.79.1, but since we are using make
3.79.1, I thought maybe I should send a bug report. If there's any
more information I can provide, just let me know.
