Personally I think this is a real bug.  Make should try to use the
fully-qualified pathname when it sets the MAKE variable, which is why
the test suite prefixes the filename with the current working directory
if the path is determined to be relative.

If MAKE is set to a relative pathname, then it will fail in recursion
when the directory is changed, since $(MAKE) will no longer be a valid

Won't it?
