Re: win32 compilation of make 4. 0 source code‏

I think the intent was to use MingW32 tools in the Windows win32 environment.
I had a  make.exe 3.80 and it had problems with "else ifeq" constructs,
so that forced me to seek a more recent version for win32.

As a separate related issue,
I was try to echo the .FEATURES information, since one of the its it claims to display
mentions its Else If capabilities.
However, every time I tried to echo the data I received a syntax error.
What would be an example of a Makefile contents which would display
the .FEATURES information ?

Obviously, you are trying to execute Makefile written for UNIX systems, are you ? This makefile relies on UNIX shell commands like uname, pwd, basename, etc. Right ?
 In order to run this Makefile, you need Cygwin or MinGW32 environment.

Well, there are native Windows ports of these commands as well (e.g.,
on the GnuWin32 site).  But I'm not sure whether Mark wants to run
native or Cygwin tools.

Actually, if Mark wants to run Cygwin tools, I'd suggest to install
the Cygwin build of Make, it will have less "issues" with Cygwin
programs than the native build of Make.
