    I have sent the following patch to the maintainer of ExtUtils-MakeMaker

    I have also ask for guidance where to add the following:

    1. Add these definition to (GNU)make and dmake Makefiles.
      It should be added EARLY in the Makefile.
      "Direct" call from the constructor or part of a section or a new MakeMaker section or ... ?
      # --- MakeMaker ???? section: ifeq "{xxx}" "xxx" MAKE_USED = dmake endif ifneq "$(.VARIABLES)" "" MAKE_USED = gnumake endif
    2. Add a snippet somewhere in Makefiles for nmake.
      It is a trap if other make programs are used
      !IF 0 This makefile is intended to be used by nmake !ENDIF
      Should this be a "direct" call from the constructor, a part of a section or a new MakeMaker section or ... ?
    3. Add the target check_run_conditions to the top targets
      # --- MakeMaker top_targets section: all :: check_run_conditions pure_all $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)
      Probably modification of the method all_target in MM_Any.pm and MM_Unix.pm
    4. Add the actions for target check_run_conditions
      The code will look something like:
      push @{$self->{RESULT}}, '', '# --- MakeMaker check_run_conditions section:', 'check_run_conditions ::'; if($target_make_program eq 'make'){ push @{$self->{RESULT}}, 'ifeq "$(MAKE_USED)" "dmake"', '# Note! The message is NOT sent to STDERR', ' $(NOECHO)echo ERROR: Using $(MAKE_USED) for a Makefile intended for ' .${target_make_program}, ' $(assign ERR OR = ERROR) #Generates an error message', 'endif'; } if($target_make_program eq 'dmake'){ push @{$self->{RESULT}}, 'ifeq "$(MAKE_USED)" "gnumake"', ' $(NOECHO)$(error ERROR: Using $(MAKE_USED) for a Makefile intended for ' .${target_make_program}.'.)', 'endif'; } “otherwise” { push @{$self->{RESULT}}, ' $(NOECHO) $(NOOP)'; }
      Should this be a part of a section or a new MakeMaker section or ?
