>>> ERROR IN Makefile

Post by manishjag.. » Sun, 21 Nov 1999 04:00:00



Hi All,

When I say "make all-all", its giving me error "make : Fatal error in
reader:Makefile, line 143: macro assignment on dependency line" at line

I don't know why its giving me error at this standard out line. Please
help. Where can I get help for such error messages? "man make" does not
help much.

There are some buggy makefiles with syntax errors that are not detected
where they really are. This is because the parser from the SunPRO make is
not 100% correct.

You could try gmake or my smake from:

ftp://ftp.fokus.gmd.de/pub/unix/smake/alpha/

and check if these make programs give better error mesages.

Mhhh, Sun Workshop 6EA is out. Is this still true for the supplied "dmake" ? What
about "/usr/ccs/bin/make" in Solaris 2.7 ?

/usr/ccs/bin/make is just a castrated dmake.

I just filed a bug because it's still present in:

/usr/ccs/bin/make:
        RELEASE VERSION SunOS 5.8 Build_32 September 1999

Synopsis: /usr/ccs/bin/make's Makefile parser is not correct

Description:

The parser uf /usr/ccs/bin/make is not correct compared to the UNIX-98
Makefile syntax description.

Tabs are accepted at places where they shouldn't.

Repeat by:

cat M1
        test:
        echo hallo
#
# Note that both lines start with a TAB!
#
burner jes 2 > \make -f M1
echo hallo
hallo
burner jes 2 > \make -f M1 -D

Quote:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Reading makefile M1

test:
        echo hallo
Quote:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> End of makefile M1

echo hallo
hallo

I tried to compile Mozilla 5 with "dmake", but it failed at different points :-(
Is there a list of diferences between "dmake" and GNU make ?
