Ah.  Are you using the cygwin binary?  Because that is not a standard
version of GNU make.  The Cygwin folks have modified it.  For any
windows-specific issues (of which this is not one) you need to ask on
the cygwin lists, FYI.

gmake --version:

I dont really know where it comes from as Im not responsible for the toolchain. One thing is for sure, im not using cygwin.

Indeed.  You must have 3.81.

Judging by the rules in your makefile you have a C compiler... that's
all you need to build GNU make.

Look at the README.W32 file for info on building on Windows systems.

Actually I did and it states that MSVC++ is required in order to produce w32 output. I dont have MSVC++.

The compiler you see defined in $(CC) is for embedded targets so its no use ;)

Hopefully someone in make-w32 can provide me a binary. Otherwise I will have to get MSVC++.

You should be asking on the address@hidden mailing lists; people who
deal with GNU make on Windows hang out there.

Ok, I'll ask around there.

Good luck!

Thank you.
