Hi Folks,

For those of you interested in the 

  Re: [Bug-gnulib] AC_PROG_YACC

thread, be advised that I have opened a bug report for FreeBSD to track
this problem.

The NetBSD -current sources have already resolved this problem and will
hopefully surface the change in their NetBSD 2.0 release.

I have also sent e-mail to the OpenBSD bugs mailing list, but I don't
have a tracking number back for them as yet.

All that said, the test Makefile submitted for this report shows that
a command like this one:
        echo "Hello,"; false; echo "World"
will fail on most of the platforms I had available for testing:

Command            AIX4.3  AIX5.1  FreeBSD5.x  NetBSD1.6.x OpenBSD3.x Solaris9
/usr/bin/make      fail    fail    fail        fail        fail       n/a
GNUmake            pass    pass    pass        pass        pass       pass
/usr/ccs/bin/make  n/a     n/a     n/a         n/a         n/a        fail
/usr/xpg4/bin/make n/a     n/a     n/a         n/a         n/a        fail

I therefore suggest that any automake generated Makefile command scripts
that might fail will need to use a combination of the && and || syntax
to ensure that the make command does not fail in the middle of such
