Not sure what's going on; it works for me (on Linux and Solaris--I don't
have an OSF1 system).  Are you sure you're running GNU make?  Run the
exact same command line that fails, but add a --version and make sure
it's GNU make.

You might try an older version of GNU make; there have been some fixes
to signal handling in the source since 3.80 was released, although those
typically only impact a make that's running with -j.
