Hi Sebastien;

Please don't send screenshots to the mailing list.  They're huge, and
they're not useful.  Make is a command-line program; there's no need to
show the window.  You should just cut and paste the text in the window
into your mail.  Thanks.

  sm> process_begin: CreateProcess((null), .. ...) failed.

Actually, this message _IS_ being printed by GNU make.  This is coming
from the Windows-specific code.

The problem here is the (null); that should be the command that is being
invoked, not a null pointer.  What does the rule in the makefile look like?

What version of GNU make are you using?  How did you compile it (with
what options)?  Are you using a UNIX shell or command.com?

Please continue this thread on the address@hidden mailing list, since
the folks who know the most about the Windows port of GNU make tend to
hang out there.  Thanks.
