    33Why not use vanilla [wiki:'GNU make']? There are several reasons:
    4  * When [wiki:kBuild kBuild] was reborn using [wiki:'GNU make'] (an earlier incarnation of the project was based on FreeBSD make) the 3.81 release was about 2 years ahead. [wiki:kBuild kBuild] relies on many features introduced after 3.80. Requiring 3.81 to be installed still isn't a viable option.
     4 * When [wiki:kBuild kBuild] was reborn using [wiki:'GNU make'] (an earlier incarnation of the project was based on FreeBSD make) the 3.81 release was about 2 years ahead. [wiki:kBuild kBuild] relies on many features introduced after 3.80. Requiring 3.81 to be installed wasn't a viable option.
    55 * Be able to add new features without having trouble getting them accepted or having to wait 3-4 years until the next [wiki:'GNU make'] version is released and makes it out to all the corners of the world.
    66 * Be able to fix bugs fast, same reasoning as above.
