Erek, I've already got /usr/ccs/bin last in my path, and I'm already using
gmake 3.78.1. Whatever is going on here seems to be new, as I've had zero

Are you using the default Sun make?  I've seen it do some rather odd

and placing /usr/ccs/bin last in your path.

Give that a try and see if it helps.
