Um, actually, that doesn't work either, because the top level Makefile
calls "make"... If you have gmake, do what the makefile tries to do
but run with gmake instead. Or (and if you don't have gmake around,
you'll have to) substitute the *expansion* of the wildcarded
expression in the definition of MANSRC.
