IMHO it's perfectly fine to rely on GNU make in any case. The company I'm
working for makes software for different customers and the only way to stay
sane and get real work done is to use GNU make on all platforms.
As far as SGI is concerned I'm also using gawk instead of SGI awk (which fails)
for the Linux cross-compile. But then again SGI awk (on 5.3) is really oawk,
and I didn't try SGI's nawk.
