I'm experiencing some strange behaviour from GNU make version 3.80.
running on a Gentoo/Linux machine with tcsh as my default shell.
When running "make", everything build just fine.
But when running "make clean", it spits out the following message:
`cat -s GNUmakefile Makefile makefile |& sed -n -e "/No such file/d" -e
"/^[^ #].*:/s/:.*//p"`: No match.
and stops building the given target.
When running the same two commands in a bash shell, it works as expected.
I also discovered that "gmake" is a symbolic link to "make" and gives me the
correct behaviour when I run "gmake clean" in my tcsh shell.
So my question is: "What's the difference between 'make' and 'gmake'?",
because "gmake" is 'only' a symbolic link to "make"?!?
Another opservation is that this behaviour is NOT present in GNU make 3.79.1.
PS: I'm not on the list, so please send me a reply by my e-mail address.
- Make bug?!?,
