   My make is only outputting 4 letters then a space and then the next
   4 letters,

I can't speak about this problem, because I have no idea what would
cause it, and honestly, I simply *can't* believe it unless I see it
happening myself.

However, there was a bug in tee(1) such that it would only copy 4
characters at a time.  tee(1)ing the output of make(1) also just
happened to catch the scheduler in its worst mood, and the output
would end up coming out in 4-byte chunks, approximately once per two
disk I/Os.

Anyway, I've updated tee(1) from 4.4-Lite (plus our previous changes),
and the latter problem should be fixed (with the exception that the
scheduling algorithm needs work).
