Posix standard did specify a way to achieve it: the implementation is
supposed to detect the occurring of the special
target [first] in the makefile, and then turns on its "compatibility
mode" (the very effect of your posix_strict flag, AFAICT.)

Would it be very complex to implement that instead of the detection of a
brand new POSIX_STRICT=1 macro?
