blarg, that was me.  from the log:

  revision 1.42
  date: 2004/10/26 01:42:14;  author: geoff;  state: Exp;  lines: +1 -1
  make sure TEST_VERBOSE respects the environment, not just the current
  shell command.

  somebody shout if ?= isn't portable

anyway, I reverted back to 1.42.  the issue I was trying to fix
was that if you do

  $ make test TEST_VERBOSE=1

TEST_VERBOSE is respected.  however, if you do

  $ export TEST_VERBOSE=1
  $ make test

TEST_VERBOSE is not respected.

a minor issue, sure, but one that was nagging me.

anyway, sorry for the late response, and thanks gozer for pinging me :)
