It would probably be a fair assumption to say that make, under Linux, is
GNU make: the average user would have this installed. I very much doubt
that anybody, except very serious developers, would have any other version
of make installed.
I don't believe that this sort of a change is necessary.
Windows is not the answer. Windows is the question. Linux is the answer.
