You can obtain a copy from:  https://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/make/

Unless something drastic changes this will be the final release candidate
for GNU make 4.3 and I plan to make the official release sometime this
week, perhaps Wednesday or Thursday.

If you want to test before the 4.3 release, please do so in the next few
days.  Or if there's a problem let me know.

Works neatly on ye old Solaris 10 sparcv9 with the Oracle C99 12.6 compiler and insanely strict CFLAGS. Even tossed in POSIXLY_CORRECT=1
at this.

The only nit, and it is a little nit, is the strange use of a three
parameter main() in src/main.c line 1054 and this is a "warning". Well
strictly speaking, pun intended, that isn't a terrible sin but it isn't
correct either. Sure, tossing in char **envp as the third rail on the
main() can work and usually does work it isn't supposed to work.

I looked in there and there is no good reason to not use getenv() but
who knows what voodoo to do in windows32?  I surely don't.

Looks like a good release after all these tests and years. Awesome.
