It means that you need GNU make 3.81.

Originally, the policy was to require 3.81 for 7.0 but ensure that 6.x
works with older versions. I don't know whether that policy has been
abandoned, or if it's just a case of careless back-porting from 7.0.

[CC to grass-dev for clarification; I think that we discussed this
fairly recently, but I don't recall the outcome.]
