gmake-devel port is now RC stage: make-3.81rc1.tar.bz2, and IMHO
we need some time to do extensive tests by changing (just illustrate
how we test)
so my opinion is:
committing gmake-devel saves at least gcc-4.1 with java, and
OpenOffice.org port. In terms of release enginnering, we can
test easily, even by casual committer like me, not by Kris.
if everthing is okay we can put the new version.
BTW: time stamp at gnu.org of make-3.80.tar.bz2
three years have passed since it it released, so I'm quite
sure there are a lot of brekage with make-3.81. IMHO
we need both make for a while.
All the best,
