GNU make is now used for managing local execution. This is a prerequisite for having parallel, simultaneous processes with dependency relationships between them. There should be no discernible difference in behavior with only this change but without stage splitting -- with stage splitting (#657) independent stages and parts of stages run in parallel.

GNU make is the default on virtually all Linux distributions and on OSX. Windows users are invited to install MinGW's version or to use the inprocess runner for local jobs.
