You could try, but I'm not optimistic that it will just work.

"just work" ?  nope.  not even close.

I think the way forward is to get the latest code from GNU make's Git
repository and see if that works:


Well sure ... however before I get there I am still baffled why this
current release code won't work on an old 32-bit intel debian server?

I just compiled kernel 4.15.15 on that machine and am running it now.

Certainly if I can compile and run a new kernel on the same machine I
would think I can compile GNU make from sources?  Or am I stretching

address@hidden:~# cat /proc/version
Linux version 4.15.15-genunix (address@hidden) (gcc version 7.3.0 (Debian 7.3.0-13)) #1 SMP Sun Apr 1 22:27:12 UTC 2018

Be sure to read the README.git file for information on building from
Git, rather than from a source distribution (it requires extra packages
to be installed, such as autotools).

yep .. autoreconf and its brethern however I suspect something else is
 going on here.
