> The attached makefiles are a part of a bigger system. The other part is
missing. It is not possible to reproduce the issue with the attached makefiles
for anyone who is missing the other part.

that even people who don't have your full build environment can run to
reproduce the issue?
I will try to do that.

No. It did not hang.

I designed this build system many years ago.  I believe we were running 3.80
at the time.  I confess that I have spent very little/no time tracking changes
to GNU make.  Mea culpa.  I have adjusted for some of the breaking changes,
but I have never put '+' on any recipes.  When is that needed?
