Having just read


over in libtool reminds me that essentially the same trivial problem happens
in automake, but I don't see the solution for a nice neat patch..

On my system, make = BSD make, gmake = GNU make.

For some reason ansi.test fails for me if I
  gmake check
but not if I
  gmake MAKE=gmake check

Why it fails with BSD make, who knows, but a separate problem is why is
ansi.test not using gmake..

>From configure:
  checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... (cached) yes
>From ansi.test:
  . $srcdir/defs || exit 1
>From defs:
  # User can set MAKE to choose which make to use.  Must use GNU make.
  test -z "$MAKE" && MAKE=make

Ah - maybe its because defs is a shell script.. and make doesn't necessarily
export ${MAKE}?

(BTW I'm not on this list)
