 In many old unix variants -e is not supported and echo doesn't support
 escape characters.
 The makefiles should probably be changed to just embed the TAB char
 instead of \t. Waiting from comments by Peter.

+Embedding the tab ought to be fine ... my only complaint is that they
+can get sort of confusing when put in the middle of lines. Overall I
+don't think that's a significant problem.
+I was thinking that maybe we can cook up a simple 'perl -e' command we
+can use instead (if the ECHO_ESCAPE test is modified to tell the
+difference between HP/UX echo and OS X echo), but I don't know of any
+super easy way to do that.
+If you like the embedded tabs I can see about fixing this myself.
+(Although I won't be able to test it.)
