I suppose we don't. One way to find out would be to commit just this
+# We need the $(eval) function, which is available in GNU make 3.80.
+# That also happens to be the version where the .VARIABLES variable
+# was introduced, so this is a simple check.
+$(error GNU make 3.80 or newer is required)
with a $(warning) instead, and let it run for a bit.
