I challenge everyone to show me a make without VPATH. In fact, show me two
makes without a feature that you can't live without, and I shall forever
hold my peace. It's certainly easier to say "let's support yacc, because
we actually don't use any non-yacc features" than saying it for make. But
it's not the idea to say "we need GNU make because it has all these
features" when 93% of these features in fact exist in all other reasonable
makes as well. It's not the end of the world but it's something that
shouldn't be ignored.
