Did you mean the tee and/or echo or the make include? If
you meant the tee and echo, they could be replace by a
perl script doing the equivalent for the paricular operating system.
Of course this would mean the install of the make system would
have to detect this and set the appropriate links to the
perl scripts specific to the OS, but I don't see that as much
of a problem. If you mean the make include, then I'm stumped.
