ok, maybe it s not a gnu-make. that s why I am confused.

I have read the man, and found a way to do it:

FILES :sh = find . -name "*.c"

otherwise, the command you gave me, did not print anything.

thanks, for your help

Are you sure you're running GNU make?

There is no such thing as $(shell ...) in Solaris make: it's interpreted
as a long, weird variable name.

Also, note you _really_ want a simple assignment:

  FILES := $(shell find . -name "*.c" -print)

(note the :=).  See the GNU make manual for more details.

If none of the above seems to be the problem, try something like:

  FILES := $(shell echo running find in `pwd` 1>&2; find . -name
"*.c" -print)

and see if you get anything printed that's interesting.
