My "exotic" build farm hosts (Stratus VOS) uses GNU make exclusively, so I have no problems with requiring its use.

However, I would like to see the Makefiles reference $(EXEEXT) to pick up the required executable suffix we use here (".pm).  Not requiring a suffix is one Unixism we haven't managed to remove yet.
