sometimes (gnu)make will lose environment information if it calls
itself too many (>4) times (recursive make). this made it impossible to
build R8 out out-of-the-box on my solaris machine.
my workaround was to manually type the last correct make invocation in
a shell, thereby getting rid of some layers of recursion.
