Follow-up Comment #6, bug #52018 (project make):

If I've understood this correctly, then the upshot of the new test,
is that we should expect a "failure", which is really just documenting legacy
behavior, that looks like:

martind@sirius:~/download/make-4.3.91$ make check
functions/wildcard ...................................... FAILED (9/10
martind@sirius:~/download/make-4.3.91$ cat
*** work/functions/wildcard.base.9      Wed Oct 19 09:03:36 2022
--- work/functions/wildcard.log.9       Wed Oct 19 09:03:36 2022
*** 1 ****
! __ldir
--- 1 ----

... from make binaries built using glibc glob on systems with glibc older than
so older than 2.27.  So Debian Stretch aka 9, with glibc 2.24, fails, where
Debian Buster aka 10, with glibc 2.28, passes, meaning that it exhibits the
new behavior, where $(wildcard) matches even dangling symlinks.
