A few too many "ifs" to make me feel comfortable. You end up with
not being able to build without the in-tree gmake in no time - and
bingo, you're coding against a single implementation again.

I fail to see the point you're trying to make - the proposal at hand
looks more like a superset, not a subset. ;)
