Yes, these are most disturbing problematic details.
I don't know why, but on Solaris the /usr/ccs/bin/make
does seem to have problems, while gmake (GNU make) in
the same system works most of the time. I have the
/usr/ccs/bin in front of my $PATH for these tests.
The "man -s 1s make" tells me of $<, and that it should
work. OTOH, the VPATH thing looks much like BSD/GNU-ONLY
type of thing, which does not work with the SysVr4 'make'.
SysVr4 'make' seems to work ok on Solaris when the configure
is not done in 'architecture specific subtree'; that is:
is ok, while
mkdir arch ; cd arch
fails to produce compilable setup.
Hmm... for most of the compile.. The '$<' seems to upset
it at some places.
I have now replaced the distribution with fixed one where
these Makefile.in problems have been solved -- to an extent
that they work at Solaris as well as at Linux.
Still, apparently the architectural sub/side directory setup
works only with GNU-make, but now it works when the program
has any name -- like 'gmake' -- which does not collide with
/Matti Aarnio -- again creating sleep deprivation problem for myself..
