> adjust the build scripts to comply with your older version

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=827132 (debhelper: make-4.2 renamed --jobserver-fds to --jobserver-auth causing parallel build issues) shows it’s not impossible that third party build scripts might hard code such details of GNU Make’s implementation but I doubt that’s what’s happening here.  Didn’t we have a report, which, away from my desk, I can’t find, from some user who turned out to have two installations of make, and a situation where a new (jobserver-auth) make ended up running an old (jobserver-fds) one, failing with this kind of symptom?

It seems as if your project "freebayes" requires a newer version of gnu
make than you have installed. You can check which version of gnu make you
have with:

gmake --version

Example of output:

gmake --version
GNU Make 4.1
Built for x86_64-slackware-linux-gnu
Copyright (C) 1988-2014 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

In the above example I have Gnu Make version 4.1.

According to
https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=""> it
seems as if the --jobserver-auth option was introduced with version 4.2 of
Gnu Make.

So you will need to update your installed version of Gnu Make or adjust
the build scripts to comply with your older version.
