Re: No output from $(shell foo) on Tru64

3.81beta1 doesn't exhibit this problem on our Alpha either. And BTW, 'make
check' succeeds for 3.81beta1 (I didn't run it for 3.80). I didn't use
--disable-job-server when configuring either version.

I am too lazy to diff 3.80 and 3.81beta1 source - is it easy to describe
what's wrong/different with Tru64 and its signals? I'm curious, and the
info might come in useful some day.

Thanks to Paul, Nicolas and GNU Makers!
