True.  If it's unfixable, I can keep using the current up-to-date  
make.  We'd have to recommend to other devs to update their make.

It's also missing the pipe:

I preceded the pipe with a backslash in Rules.make - now it keeps the  
pipe and libraries aren't recompiled.  But, this doesn't work in  
3.81, so it doesn't look like a usable solution.
