1. I checked help archives for DEC00-FEB01 and got frustrated with the lack
of a search. I didn't notice the "full raw archive" - my bad. I will
definately use this.

2. Yes - I found Paul's website today. And, I did see 'Multi-Architecture
builds using GNU make' today. Even though it used recursive makes, it was
pretty long and solving a different problem. So, I didn't read it.

I'll review the "full raw archive" tomorrow.

Thanks for your help,

(1) Lots of examples were discussed in the mailing list in the past.

The list archive is available at:

(see the List-Archive: mail header).

I couldn't find a search option -- however, you can download the 736K
archive and search using your mailer. If your mailer cribs, just remove
the first blank line using your text editor. I could find about 20
messages containing 'recurs' in their body.

(2) I presume you have already seen the 'Recursion' node of the info.

(3) Visit the wonderful site by Paul D. Smith:

The article titled 'Multi-Architecture builds using GNU make' uses

Everything in this site can be termed 'gmake gems'.
