Ticket #382 (closed bug: fixed)
Using := in Makefiles causes extra complexity

Description (last modified by Infinoid) (diff)
When Configure.pl detects gmake in your $PATH, it assumes you intend to use it, and allows ":=" syntax in the Makefile it generates. Thus, when gmake is installed, you are forced to use it (even when it's not the normal "make" for your platform). See discussion below.
