To clarify, as indicated by the Austin group link (beware:
pointer chasing there), this is not "depending on GNU make", but
"depending on anything but IRIX make".

And reading again, I was wrong on the safe side re: IRIX; "all
known makes" were ok, including IRIX 6.5 (just that it supported
"only" one level of indirection, that's what's used here).  So,
"should work everywhere" with a definition of "everywhere" four
years ago being "IRIX 6.5, AIX 4.3.3, Tru64 4.0D, Solaris 2.6,
HP-UX 10.20, NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and of course GNU".

brgds, H-P
