How about working from the basis that perhaps, just perhaps, I'm _right_, and show me why _I_ am wrong.  After all, right now, I see me and a few others doing actual _work_, and others merely taking potshots.

By all means, show an alternate solution, one that assumes that some project or another, which will be a part of the FreeBSD ports collection, will _require_ GNU make 3.82, and we can go from there.

Believe me, I'm willing to listen to well thought on, start to end, include all possibility plans, but right now, all I'm seeing is "you're wrong" without anything substantial to back it up so, at this point, I'd like to focus on the issue at hand and get the work _done_.
