 Release announcement
 http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gnu.make.devel/916 - looks as if there
 is one thing with the potential to break some Makefiles (hopefully, not
 many of them) -
 New feature: "!=" shell assignment operator as an alternative to the
   $(shell ...) function.  Implemented for compatibility with BSD
   Note there are subtle differences between "!=" and $(shell ...).  See
   description in the GNU make manual.
   WARNING: Backward-incompatibility!
   Variables ending in "!" previously defined as "variable!= value" will
 now be
   interpreted as shell assignment.  Change your assignment to add
   between the "!" and "=": "variable! = value"
