GNU Make version 3.80 is now available for download.

The `make' utility automates the process of compilation.  When the
source files of a large program change, Make automatically determines
which pieces need to be updated and recompiles only those files.

GNU make is fully compliant with the POSIX.2 standard, but also has many
powerful extensions: flexible implicit pattern rules, an extensive set
of text manipulation functions, conditional evaluation of makefiles,
support for parallel command execution, automatic updating of makefiles,
and much more.

In addition to UNIX systems, it can be built for DOS, Windows (using
various toolkits), VMS, and Amiga platforms.

Please see the README and INSTALL files for information on building GNU
make for your system.

This release contains several bug fixes plus some powerful new features,
including an $(eval ...) function, "order-only" prerequisites,
compatibility with the odd SysV make $$@ syntax, a new command-line
option -B or --always-make, ability to create recursive functions for
use with $(call ...), new variables MAKEFILE_LIST and .VARIABLES, and
