The tree should be quite portable, even if I have to admit that it's
been a while that I tested on Solaris, various BSDs, and Win32.

At least for me, portability is an asset, and I'll happily support
portability improvement efforts.

That said,

gnu make is a hard dependency.

If we stick to what _all_ makes can do (including some 386bsd make from
the early 90s), I'd rather write build scripts and forgo make entirely.
