I don't think there's any way that a GNU make release can be done for at
least another month or so: the CVS code is sort of in the middle of

It would be good, when you find things like this, if you could file a
bug on the Savannah site (I get bugs from Debian, etc. that way too).

Question: is this change portable to previous versions of FreeBSD as
well?  You test just __FreeBSD__, which I assume is defined for 4.x,
etc.  versions as well, so I want to make sure that this section won't
cause breakage on older versions.
