Hello John,

I concur: that Makefile segfaults with make 3.80. However, you may like to 
know that it doesn't upset 3.81beta3 (linux and MinGW builds). I expected 
this might be the case because I've been through the same experience: one 
day, I added another innocuous line to my make script, and it just blew up. 
So I don't know what the specific bug is, just that it's gone away now in 
3.81beta3. We now have no choice but to use a beta build of make in 
production. I'm looking forward to the next stable release [hint, hint].

By golly, I'm beginning to think Linux really *is* the best thing since
sliced bread.
