porting to UNICOS

i'm working on updating the port to unicos and i ran
into a "make" problem with 2.0.11 that didn't exist with 2.0.

i narrowed it down to this line in the Makefile created after
configure is run.  this line appears in this form on both
unicos and linux, linux's linker doesn't have a problem with
it but unicos' has a fatal error.
sleep_LDADD = $(LDADD) -lm  \

obviously it's really a shell problem, because there is just a
blank line after the backslash, so it should read it as end of
line, but shell on the cray keeps reading til characters show
up, so it fills sleep_LDADD as 
"../intl/libintl.a ../lib/libfetish.a    sleep_DEPENDENCIES = ../intl/libintl.a 
../lib/libfetish.a", which causes the linker to 
search for a file called "sleep_DEPENDENCIES" (which doesn't exist) and
fail on the "=".

src/Makefile.an contains the line

now, @LIB_CLOCK_GETTIME@ @LIB_NANOSLEEP@ are null, hence
the empty line, right? 

given the chance of "fixing" the shell on the cray any time soon (not likely)
do you have any idea how i can get around this?  (beyond hand patching the
makefile after a configure)
