FreeBSD's and OpenBSD's make, as well as GNU's make, seem to understand
it OK (both from reading the docs and personal experiments).

The current way of doing it doesn't work on FreeBSD's and OpenBSD's
make, although it does work on GNU's make.

Is there some other make which does accept the current way of doing it
and does not accept my proposed way?
