I tried doing the same things Matthew was doing last night, but it got
really ugly fast. If we can make the jhalfs Makefile be processed by
bash but not propagate it down to other make processes, that would
make things a lot easier.

In the long run, it might be better to have the commands in the
Makefile portable, but it seems like a big hassle.
