Re: [Orgmode] [PATCH] Allow 'prefix' to be set on the command line

    I'm not sure if I read the diff right.  It replaces the equal sign
'=' with '?=' right?  I don't see that in the description of posix
make.  (http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/utilities/make.html)

Also, if you look at section "Macros" for the phrase, "Macro
definitions shall be taken from the following sources", it kinda looks
like defining prefix (or any make macro) on the command line ought to
replace the definition in the makefile anyhow.  I'm pretty sure I've
used this before with gnu-make.  I think I've done it with the make on
freebsd (pmake?) and on aix.  Maybe this is broken on some
