ok.  I actually don't have a solaris box to try on - I just went to sun's
support site and saw that the manpage for make was gmake (at least the one
that google first pointed me toward :)

yeah, not good.

well, the solution at the moment is to not have a solution - cvs has been
reverted, so unless a real solution can be found it will remain a minor nit.

the gmake manual suggests that ?= is equivalent to

ifeq ($(origin TEST_VERBOSE), undefined)

so that might make for a good test - the gmake manual didn't speficially say
that origin was explicit to it, but then again it didn't mention ?= either :)
