Compiling make with -DPOSIX is necessary to get MAKE and MAKEFLAGS
working correctly.  Compiling make without it is necessary for
makefiles w/spaces.

Since GNU Make handles both correctly, and also claims to be POSIX.2
compliant, I'm hoping that the problem is that pmake was based on an
earlier POSIX draft.  I don't have my copy here --- I'll check it
