Ah, well I remember when "make" was first introduced (in PWB?); I thought
it was Christmas...
Now, even it has to be modified for various platforms.
Trivia: what does "make love" say on your system? My Mac boringly says
"make: *** No rule to make target `love'. Stop." and the FreeBSD box
isn't much better: "make: don't know how to make love. Stop". I don't
know what my Penguin laptop says because it's currently switched off.
