Hi Sam.

Not finding a newer GNU make package in the gnewsense4 repos, I went
ahead and built for local use a new version of GNU make on the yeeloong
used for builds, and dropped the Makefile patches I was using or trying
to use for 5.0-gnu and 5.1-gnu builds.

I wonder if we could have newer GNU make packages readily available on
gNewSense, so that others could rebuild the kernel to their liking, or
whether I shouldn't even be using make-kpkg there any more, and I'd be
better off with some other kernel building and packaging machinery I'm
unfamiliar with.  Suggestions are welcome.

My Yeeloong is getting pretty creaky. It could do with a hard drive
replacement, but I wonder if it's worth the bother. I'll ask on -users
if anyone else is still using it. If not, I'm considering dropping
support for mipsel.

If it's using SATA I could provide you a SSD for it.
