My name appears in that Makefile because I wrote it and used it to
create the charmap codecs.

The reason why the Mac Japanese codec was not created for 2.x was the
size of the mapping table. 

Ideal would be to have the C version of the CJK codecs support the Mac
Japanese encoding as well. Adding back the charmap based Mac Japanese
codec would be a compromise.

The absence of the Mac Japanese codec causes (obvious) problems for many
Japanese Python users running Mac OS X.
