Is it just a tradition or is it more?
Tradition is more :)
Targeting yet another variant of make seems like a spectacular waste of time :)
I wouldn't target gnu make, i'd target its replacement, makepp - Compatible but reliable and improved replacement for make, Or I would target http://www.bakefile.org/, and you automagically support everything and then some (I know, wishful thinking again )
Yes, I know. And ExtUtils::MakeMaker is also "doomed" by it's maintainer!
Seems you've missed the problem behind the punchline, have you actually
watched read the slideshow? Or at minimum The Plea?
Schwerns point is, make is non-portable external tool, don't patch MakeMaker to work with another make or do something new, just extend Module::Build, switch your distributions to Module::Build
