Re: Fold cross-make and build-make into configure

There are a couple of oddities related to bash and configure but make and Makefiles work pretty well as long as you stick to Unix
format file specifications.

FYI:
1) THere's a length limit on *individual* elements that can be passed in argv via
   fork/exec, approximately 1024 characters (see my recent patch submission to top
   level configure)

2) File position in a redirected common output file isn't preserved from
   non-trivial commands that execute in a subshell, for example gcc/mkconfig.sh
   doesn't quite work on VMS as is. I'll be submitting a patch later this week.
