Your code ;-)
My code also doesn't depend on csh and will not depend on it.

GNU make and BSD make. Most today's software relies on these make's
features and therefore depend on non-posix tools.
Neither gzip (.tar.gz) nor bzip2 (.tar.bz2) are a part of Std
1003.1-2008 (2008!). At least 95% of software sources are distributed in
these two formats.

If you know csh is _completely_ broken (I don't) speak to upstream.

AFAIK shells/tcsh is backward compatible with csh.

Do all unix system come with GNU make?
Do you want to rewrite GNU Makefiles for POSIX make?
P.S. We dispute about mere trifles. There is more helpful pkgsrc work
than reimplementing csh scripts, e.g. pkg/41297.
