Re: make 3.80 and VPATH

We're just typing 'make', which unless something changed, should be the same as 'make --unix'. 'make -p | grep MAKE_MODE' returns 'MAKE_MODE = unix'. Hmm. I do see that /etc/profile is setting MAKE_MODE=unix so that may not be make's default.

That example works fine if I do 'make --win32' but fails when just using 'make'. That is a change in behavior from the previous version of make. The testcase works with either of --unix & --win32 when using make 3.79.1-7 .

Using --win32 is not an option for building Mozilla as the common set of build rules assume that a bourne shell is being used.
