also, while on the topic of portability, I noticed that djb does not include 
ANY variable substitutions (only backtick ` ` substitutions) in his Makefile.  
I'm curious if this is also for portability reasons.  Anyone aware of any 
implementations of the 'make' program that don't understand variable 
substitions in Makefiles, or any situations (lack of /bin/sh compatible 
shell, perhaps?) that might make variable substitutions not possible?

Thanks again :)
