in reply to make / Makemaker trouble

Perhaps the problem is with your version of make. Borland's make chokes on MakeMaker files in this way.

Try nmake at the usual source or here.

    Borland's make doesn't choke on MakeMaker-made Makefiles if you tell MakeMaker to make a Makefile for Borland make. (Sung to the tune of "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck".)

    That is why we have MakeMaker and not just a Makefile. What type of Makefile to generate is determined from settings in your file.
