Support non-GNU versions of make #771
I have bmake (NetBSD's make, which is mostly just POSIX like and doesn't support many GNU-isms) installed on most of my machines. The makefile for this project mostly works, but
This sets those files in a more standard way that other versions of Make (including GNU's) will also pick up on.
@GuillaumeGomez what sort of system are you on or what version of Make? That appears to work for me on both GNUMake and NetBSD make; I think (though I'd have to double check) that that's part of POSIX, so it should work on all versions
EDIT: That may not be true, I don't see any mention of it in the spec after a quick grep. Still, it's widely supported and I've used it a lot when trying to make makefiles more portable, so I'd love to know what version it doesn't exist in. Thanks.
