Nope, no dice. Already tried that. According to automake manual,
this option only sets the level of `strictness':
Automake will check for only those things which are absolutely
required for proper operations. For instance, whereas GNU
standards dictate the existence of a `NEWS' file, it will not be
required in this mode. The name comes from the fact that Automake
is intended to be used for GNU programs; these relaxed rules are
not the standard mode of operation.
...but this option apparently does nothing to guarantee
I'm not sure if there's such a thing as a "compatible" Makefile.in, or
if it's even a meaningful question to ask if a Makefile.in is
"compatible" with BSD make. So I'm starting to wonder if perhaps this
is an autoconf issue instead. (?)
