I don't think there really is a policy regarding gnumake functions. Our makefiles rely 
heavily on gnumake so in principle it's ok to use these functions. However the new 
automake parallel-test feature has issues with patsubst and perhaps other functions. With 
automake 1.13, parallel-test has become the default way. So with that in mind we may 
have to reconsider what we can and can't use in our makefiles.
