you're right about the mountpoint exec.  Moved it to /home/someuser and now we're cooking with gas.  sorry to have bothered you all.

no, make would work fine irregardless.  noexec affects things that live on the
mounted system, not anywhere else.  make lives in /usr/bin/.

verify something simple works in that directory like:
cat << EOF >
echo HI
chmod a+rx

if that fails, run it through strace.

Triathlon isn't in my DNA.  I wasn't born lean and long of limb.  I don't have the dolphinesque ease of Ian Thorpe.  I don't run a mile in 4 minutes.  I bought my bike used and half of my gear was handed down from friends.  But I am a triathlete and I will be an Ironman because nothing can stop me.
