src/tools/make/ contains the official way to regenerate

If you want to keep it simple, I could switch it to use uname instead of
will break cross-compiling but AFAICS the whole purpose of this script
is to bootstrap make on
non-NetBSD systems, which is a very native-build oriented end, and I
doubt cross-compiling was
ever intended to work here anyways.

Does that sound good?

I assume you mean cross-compiling in the Canadian sense, i.e. building the tools for another system. I don't know if that works or is intended to work. You can ask and observe the outcry or lack thereof.

Testing for availability of MAXPATHLEN would be better, though. I guess you can just look at some tool using MAXPATHLEN and determine what you need to include so that you can test if it's available or not.
