	You need to rebuild usr.bin/make, and install it.  The "Q"
modifier was added to make's variable substitution rules recently.

             Q           Quotes every shell meta-character in the variable, so
                         that it can be passed safely through recursive invo-
                         cations of [make].

	I assume the missing "make" in the sentence above is a glitch? Or
is it that I'm running old tmac macros?  I haven't actually installed the
system I built yet, just following the sources.
