        The following was reported by a Debian user. It is a simple
 fix, and seems correct.

Package: make
Version: 3.80-8
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

make checks at several places "v->special" (where v is a "struct
variable"), but never seems to set this bit to 0. I haven't seen this
give actual errors anywhere, but it cropped up as valgrind hits while
trying to debug a makefile (the makefile was wrong, not make, though :-)

The included patch explicitly sets v->special to 0 at initialization
time, which fixes the valgrind hits.
