I've made some additional fixes to the GNU make which is included in the OS4 SDK thanks to some feedback:

- fixed readme typo (thanks David Rey)
- fixed error stream synchronization issue (thanks Thomas Hoffmann)

- compiled with SDK 51.22
- updated to clib2 1.200
- stderr stream is utilized again when executing commands (thanks Thomas Hoffmann)

Remember that you can speed up most compiles just by using -j2 (--jobs=2).

You may also want to consider applying some of the advice in Recursive Make Considered Harmful to your projects. I've done some experiments and by eliminating recursive make calls I can now use parallel make even more effectively.
