I have a program which is using the splice(2) system call for i/o when the
source is a pipe.

Each time I run GNU make in the terminal, the program will fail afterwards
with an error caused by splice(2) not being able to write to the terminal

It happens because GNU make sets the terminal in append-mode, and splice(2)
will not accept it.

I have already described this bug at


and also already submitted a report with a patch to bug-make@


which was ignored without any explanation.
