Hmm - it looks like a bug in GNUmake - this happens for me with make
version 3.79.1 (on ixion), but is fine with version 3.80 (on my home
machine). The old make seems to be ignoring my custom rule for building
the algorithms, and passing -Werror to them anyway. A workaround for
now would be to remove -Werror from the makefile entirely.

Yes. On reflection, I should probably have written a script to generate
appropriate portable makefiles and other files from the list of
algorithms available.
