Please show output of

$ make --version
$ echo 'all:; @echo $(.FEATURES)' | make -f -
$ grep -C1 order.only config.log

If your make doesn't support order-only prerequisites, then of course my
patch won't help you.  I'm not sure what I can do in that case, though,
besides maybe globally reordering tests so that those likely to fail
(such as mdemo-dryrun) are not prerequisites to others.
