#17 makefile targeted to gmake only


After a configure, make doesn't do anything on a SCO platform. A cd ./lib; make doesn't do nothing either.
Using gmake helps a little but the make process fails whith the lack of ./lib/.deps/xmlparse.pp reported earlier.

    Fails in a Sun / Solaris environment as well - Needed to
    hand mangle the makefile.in files

    Sharing the Makefile.in fixes for Solaris would be very helpful!

    I suspect that you're using a make that doesn't understand the .PHONY declaration, but am not sure. I've now seen this as well in a Sun make, where .PHONY was not mentioned in the documentation of the .SPECIAL targets.

    Closing this as it is primarily a tool issue.
