While this code looks fine, I don't think it should go into
Unlike the other suffixes in, .m does not unambiguously
identify Objective-C files; as a result, users using .m for something
else might get a nasty surprise after they install 1.3.  I would have
no problem with adding the rules to, so that only makefiles
that explicitly use the bsd.*.mk system are affected.
