 I had revision 1.95.  Updateing to revision 1.97 makes no
 I note that pkgsrc/mk/tools/ (revision 1.97) contains these
 	.if !defined(TOOLS_IGNORE.gmake) && !empty(_USE_TOOLS:Mgmake)
 	.  if !empty(PKGPATH:Mdevel/gmake)
 whereas pkgsrc/mk/tools/ (revision 1.12) contains a much simpler
 	.if !empty(_USE_TOOLS:Mgmake)
 Perhaps that test in is too simple?
 Also, I have been unable to figure out why _USE_TOOLS ends up containing
 "gmake" when we are trying to build gmake.
