[bug #63307] make 4.4 passes ignored SIGPIPE on to children

Follow-up Comment #13, bug #63307 (project make):

When SIGPIPE is set to the default action, then yes, writing to a closed pipe
is expected to get make to die abnormally. That's how SIGPIPE is designed to
work. :) This is different from a regular failure to write to stdout.

There is little benefit to continuing the build in that case: if the build
continues, spawned processes will see the same closed pipe that make saw, and
those spawned processes will likely fail anyway because they too would be
terminated by SIGPIPE if they attempt to write to stdout.
