Follow-up Comment #26, bug #48643 (project make):
The reason to include a flag for option #4 is that users may have newer
versions of GNU make (installed on their distros) but not be able to modify
all the makefiles they are using to address their problems (older software
downloaded from somewhere... or they just can't fix it for Reasons(tm)).
However I don't want to do 3 or 4 immediately: I'd prefer to give some time
for people to address issues.
I'll do a build of a collection of F/OSS I have here with a version of GNU
make with #2 installed and see what I get.
