Re: make: avoid breaking backwards compatability

As an aide to the discussion, the patch below adds a unit-test
for some of the common behavior that some existing makefiles rely on.

target0 is the fiding some dir/foo.c via .PATH even when foo.c is
present in '.'

target1 is relying on the suffix rules to apply the dependency foo.c ->
foo.o even when there is an explicit rule for foo.o

target2 is stupid case that my first attempts to fix target1 broke ;-)

Stupid or not, in each case the real makefiles that rely on this
behavior have worked with every version of bmake posted for the last 15
years.  They should contine to work.

The expected ouput is approximately the same with our older make 
and a "fixed" new one.  The older make does not necessarily set impsrc=
in all cases but otherwise the result is the same and the lack of or
value of .IMPSRC does no harm.

The current make outputs - which fails target0 and target1

target=lstInit.o impsrc=lstInit.c
target=target0 impsrc=lstInit.o all=lstInit.o
spontaneous: source1.b
target=target1.z impsrc=source1.b all=source1.b
spontaneous: source2.a
spontaneous: source2.b
target=target2 impsrc=source2.a all=source2.a source2.b
target=target2.x impsrc=target2 all=target2

now if someone can come up with a better patch that passes impsrc-compat
that would be cool.
