Makefile: add a target which will abort compilation with ancient shells
This adds a make target which can be used to try to execute certain shell constructs which are required for compiling and running git. This patch provides a test for the $() notation for command substition which is used in the Makefile and extensively in the git scripts. The make target is named in such a way as to be a hint to the user that SHELL_PATH should be set to an appropriate shell. If the shell command fails, the user should receive a message similar to the following: make: *** [please_set_SHELL_PATH_to_a_more_modern_shell] Error 2 Signed-off-by: Brandon Casey <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
