Issue 72: make on OpenBSD 4.0 exits: Don't know how to make TXT2CFLAGS (make line 8849)

Installing gmake seems to have cleared up this problem.  I'm filing 
a bug because the INSTALL document at:

http://www.monotone.ca/INSTALL

makes no mention of gmake as a (possible) requirement on some 
platforms.

If you are wondering what choked the OpenBSD make utility, line 8849 
is the last "fi" statement associated with the target

$(RECURSIVE_TARGETS):

The target

mostlyclean-recursive clean-recursive distclean-recursive \
maintainer-clean-recursive:

follows immediately after a blank line.

The compile just finished while I was reporting this.  "make 
check" fails with the same error.  "gmake check" is 
now busy grinding away.

Resolution: either make the Makefile more portable, or document 
gmake as a possible requirement on some platforms.
