Use GNU make. Not 3.77 unfortunately, it has a bug.
The problem is that Sun's make doesn't allow wildcards in
dependencies. Or rather, it has a different syntax than most other
makes. An alternative would be to fixup all wildcard refs with
ALLSRC:sh = echo ....src/*/*.[chfy])
... : $(ALLSRC)
Of course, this doesn't work with any *other* version of "make".
These Makefile incompatibilities are a major pain! Anyone happen to
know if there's a document giving an overview of which features are
present on which version of which OS's?
