Re: (b)make: selecting every other element from a list

True. While I rarely do it in make, in sh I comparatively often do
this by gluing the elements of pairs together, as in
for x in 1.foo 2.bar 3.blee
Depending on where your lists come from, something of the sort may be
of some use to you (adapted, of course, to make syntax).

I think it might not if you use = instead of :=, or some such.

Heh. Fair enough.
