Hi make maintainers,


First, many thanks for your time maintaining and polishing this tool.


On my side, I modestly contribute to tcc (TinyC) compiler which is an ultra-fast C compiler (see https://repo.or.cz/w/tinycc.git).

Among others, I ensure that it allows to build a standalone native compiler version on Windows both 32/64.

To provide a complete working C toolchain, it lacks a ‘make’ utility as with other unix like systems.

I can of course compile make on Windows with cl or MingW but it is intellectually more interesting to build make with tcc.

For that I just added tcc support in build_w32.bat and also added src/config.h.TCC which can probably be merged in config.h.W32


It then make works ROOTB from make 4.3 (no changes in source code) using:


build_w32.bat tcc


I hope it interests you and you’ll add this support in official repository. I’m of course candidate to maintain this part.
