some people in the office use GNU make 3.79.1 on Windows
They also set the environment variable MAKE_MODE to DOS.
I got interested and tried to find out what other variables
influence the behaviour of "make", but did not find anything
in the documentation.
A "grep" through the sources showed that the combination
"MAKE" and "MODE" only appears once in the sources, in a
file that does not seem to influence the behaviour.
As i don't think they need this variable in the Makefile
itself i think that they can also leave that environment
Is there any influence of environment variable on the
behaviour of "make"? Of course there is an influence if
a variable is used in the Makefile itself, but aside from
that, is there an influence?
