Excellent. I've been using -rR for downloading for a while (56k modem), but
didn't know how to automate it... so I'd even start make, then interrupt it
once I saw what the URL is... err, I might be embarrassing myself now, so
I'll stick to my question: I don't have /etc/make.conf. If I make one with
just that line in it, will that work? Or could I set it as an environment
variable so /every/ fetch assumed -rR?
