Well, I have never used those, so I don't know. Surely those tools,
too, tried to if not emulate, at least "simulate", POSIX in some ways?

Anyway, my point with this:

was that the build mechanism (including how a "make" program works in
general) is designed with UNIX concepts/ideas/principles in mind. "But
those concepts are intuitive, obviously the correct way to design an
OS and its applications, etc etc". Yeah, sure, *we* who have been
using UNIX for a long time think so.
