Would this bmake happen to be my autoconf'd version of our make?
If yes, you might want to grab the lastest/greatest from
it was sync'd with -current this morning after I committed the -dx and
MAKEFLAGS etc changes.

bootstrapping bmake is pretty simple now and it's configure
has a bunch of --with-foo args to allow setting defaulst for
MACHINE, MACHINE_ARCH as well as what goes into DEFSYSPATH.

Unless someone finds a bug, I don't anticipate any further changes for
some time.
