Thanks -- this is what I was asking.
Make is doing _something_ wrong -- instead of executing commands
it's opening secondary shells under Windows XP. (However, when the
commands are batch files those are executed correctly!)
The same make and the same makefile worked just fine under Windows
98. The commands displayed with make -n are all correct, but
obviously something about the passing of the commands to the shell
I'm immensely frustrated, and I have no idea where to turn --
debugging make in source code is really not a project I want to take
on. I know it's a free program, so I don't have any right to
complain;but I'm astonished that as long as XP has been out, someone
hasn't noticed this problem and fixed it.
