If you really want I can sign yet another FSF copyright disclaimer
I think I did only some trivial one line changes, basically
s/\.o/\.$(OBJEXT)/g and s/m4/m4$(EXEEXT)/g.

For the install and uninstall targets I got them from the
and uninstall-info-am targets from doc/Makefile.in of the current make
tarball, and I had to change one line. I hope it works on all systems.
I don't know why they do it that complicated.

Best regards,
