Ok. Do you know if it still compiles on AmigaOS with ixemul (the posix
layer)? Well, I guess I can just try and see...

Ok, then the question translates into this one: how big can a BIG make
file be? I mean, I'm going to use one big makefile for a large project
(AROS, http://www.aros.org/), switching from the current build system
which uses a lot of different tools and about 600 makefiles whose
average size is of 212 lines: now, do you have any rough idea on whether
make will consume a lot of memory and on whether it will be slow?

Sorry, I kow all this doesn't belong to this list... if you feel I should
email you privately, or post to another ML, please tell me.
