> It should not be necessary for the use-cases of make

I assert that arithmetic functionality does have use-cases in Make.
Beyond building, I use Make for packaging my software and running tests.
I often find that it would be useful to perform version comparisons
and other simple packaging things.

I sometimes get into scenarios in more complex Makefiles where I want
to perform sanity checks on versions that users pass in via
environmental variables and the like.
