It looks like there will probably need to be one, yes.

However, I don't think that any changes being made for GNU Make 4.4
compatibility, would render the makefile unusable with GNU Make 4.3
(unless they start actually using the new features like the new
functions, but I don't know of any projects doing so yet... of course
that doesn't mean they are not) so sticking with 4.3 shouldn't render
any projects unbuildable.

Most of these changes are cleanups to always-problematic code, that
used to happen to work "by accident" but no longer does (or won't in
the future for deprecated things).
