I really think that the maintainers of a central package like make, be
it upstream or you, should consider such a change thoroughly and in fact
test alternatives *before* the release or upload. And a sarge or even
woody pbuilder chroot is just a couple of commands away. Probably you
can even install sarge's make_...deb in a sid or etch chroot.
