The operator -ot causes errors.

It's OK if 'test ! B -ot A' issues a diagnostic on your old platform, so long as it fails (exits with nonzero status) when that happens. In that case, some extra work will be done by 'make' because -ot is not supported, but that's merely a minor inefficiency; it's not a correctness problem. And given that your platform is so old it's no longer supported, we don't need to worry about minor inefficiencies like that.
