Sure. Moving to gmake is worth it, tho
There are really two things here:
- gcp could'nt be used with the previous build system if it was in a different
place than /bin/cp . Even if you specified the full path, some files still
tried to run /bin/cp with gcp-like arguments.
- it is not possible to run a build with a non-gnu cp anymore (I tried once),
removing the check in configure.in is not sufficient.
With the new build system, gcp has become usable and we're trading a
regression for a fix; there are more important issues with the new build
system such as undefined variables in some Makefiles and I'd like to fix
