I did send to you directly because I am new here and didn't want to
generate too much noise in case I was completely off base.  I fear
people already think I am clueless complaining about make 3.82 as it is :-)

I was unaware if the linux-2.6-allstable tree and so I am replying to
the list because I agree that your feedback may well be helpful to
others.  Thanks for your time and effort.

I am looking more deeply into this issue, but it is really starting to
look like make 2.82 has a bug, as I am seeing many errors as I feared.
It could also be some other issue of course, but I don't think so at
this point.
