Hi grendelan,

which version/brand of make are you using ?

You need to use GNU make.  Try 'make --version'.  Mine displays --

address@hidden ~]$ make --version
GNU Make 3.81
Copyright (C) 2006  Free Software Foundation, Inc.

This program built for i386-redhat-linux-gnu
address@hidden ~]$ 

If yours doesn't display anything similar, you need to install GNU make. ;-)

It will probably be installed under the name 'gmake' or 'gnumake'.  Then 
you should be able to use this 'gmake' to build gnustep.


PS: We should probably add a check in gnustep-make's configure that the make
being used is GNU make and else print an informative error message. ;-)
