I submitted the following to address@hidden but didn't hear back. Apologies
if this is a duplicate, as I couldn't figure out how to search outstanding
Make bugs in Savannah.


A recent change broke use of Perl in Makefiles for me. This is because I have
a PATH element with a directory called 'perl'. Here is how to reproduce it:

     $ sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/make-4.2.1-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
     $ mkdir -p mybin/perl
     $ cat Makefile

             which perl
             perl -le 'print "HELLO"'
     $ make
     which perl
     perl -le 'print "HELLO"'
     $ sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/make-4.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
     $ make
     which perl
     perl -le 'print "HELLO"'
     make: perl: Permission denied
     make: *** [Makefile:5: all] Error 127

As you can see, the problem occurs with Make 4.3.1 but not 4.2.1.
