Meanwhile a friend and I are giving 4.2.93 a look on FreeBSD 12.0 and
a whole slew of packages fail to build.

I can reproduce these failures trying to build dpkg 1.19.7 on GNU/Linux
with the new make.  Ugh!!

There seems to be some issue with old-style suffix rules.

I will investigate this tonight.  Thanks for noticing this!

Just the sort of thing we do. I really do love the test suite in gnu
make but nothing beats the coffee pot draining horror show of trying to
build thirty thousand packages from source on FreeBSD. That can really
shake loose the most tiny corner cases. As for Solaris 10 on ye old
Fujitsu SPARC and the Oracle studio compilers, well gee, I just use that
to shake loose some obsessive compusive standards compliance stuff.
Which it does. Wonderfully and at great endless cost. Gotta love Oracle.
