​I don't think GNU Make 4.1 would be considered a "major rebase". It's a
minor point release that is either purely additive or bug fixes. The fact
that we fell behind is actually pretty surprising. Also, since GNU Make 4.1
has been out for over a year, I doubt that upstream would even be
supporting GNU Make 4.0 at all anymore...​
