Here it is.  As usual, comments and suggestions welcome.

The proposed documentation seems quite useful. It does have a flaw in that it identifies 'make' programs based on the operating system where they were currently found (e.g. "FreeBSD make"). The issues may pertain to only certain versions of such make programs, or the 'make' associated with an OS may be entirely supplanted (or optionally replaced) with a 'make' which offers completely different behavior.

What is useful information today may become 'lore' in a few years so it would be good to add additional data so that the reader (and documentation maintainer) knows the vintage of the information.
