BSD make (aka pmake) uses suffix rules (.c.o: ...) instead of pattern rules (%.c:%.o: ...) which are more general and flexible. The suffix module should be re-written so that is based on pattern rules, and pattern rules should be implemented. This will gain 90% compatibility with GNU make, and the rest (variable manipulations) can easily be added.
