i have some old (circa 1997) makefiles which run fine on current UNIX systems with their versions of make. if i run gnu make as make -n then GNU make shows the commands that will be executed just fine however, when i actually issue the make command then none of the commands as reported via make -n are actually executed.

is this a known problem; is there a workaround ?

Sounds like a configuration problem, just an idea, but are you setting SHELL?

Are you running GNU Make v3.81 ? Perhaps you can try with that latest release.

If you can post a small reproducible test case, telling us your OS, shell and make version we could help a bit more.
