3.81 works.  There were a couple rebuilds, but that may have been  
from earlier rebuilds, like sqlp.  I verified by building 3.80 from  
source (complete rebuild, so Apple didn't do anything to make).

So, looks like there may have been some bugs in 3.80.  But, your  
average Mac user is not going to want to install a current make.   
And, since Markus had the same problem, there may be Linux distros  
that have an older make in their package manager.

I remembered to zip it this time :)
