Hmmm....  Prepending "." to the value of PATH doesn't work, I don't
understand why it would either.  So GNU make does not work with the bash
shell?  (This is in contrast to any experience I've ever had on any UNIX
platform.)  What shells do work?  :-|

I thought when I execute a $(shell ...) function or I have a command
that runs, that command is supposed to be run by the shell?  If that is
the case, this seems like a GNU make bug to me, because GNU make is not
spawning a shell, and the behavior is not equivalent to the behavior
when spawning a shell.
