According to POSIX, makefiles should be able to replace the special rule
.SCCS_GET in order to specify how to get SCCS files that do not exist in the
current directory. The default is:


Also, suffixes such as ".foo~" (meaning ".foo" files prefixed by a "s.") do
not seem to be supported. I am aware that these can be done in other ways with
GNU Make, but for portability's sake, they should be there.
