I'm currently aware of these problems:

- Tru64's native make does not like relative paths in include
- UnixWare's native make does not like variables in VPATH

Both problems are addressed with one patch (RSN). If you want me
to fix problems on platforms I don't have access to (like BSDI),
tell me what the problems are or (preferred) give me access to
the platform. I'm sure we can work it out.
