If GNU make is not named 'make' then the install target fails for the

Making install in libltdl
gmake[1]: Entering directory
Usage : make [ -f makefile ][ -K statefile ]... [ -d ][ -dd ][ -D ][ -DD ]
             [ -e ][ -i ][ -k ][ -n ][ -p ][ -P ][ -q ][ -r ][ -s ][ -S ][ -t ]
             [ -V ][ target... ][ macro=value... ]
make: Fatal error: Unknown option `-w' 

This problem is particularly onerous since the install target should
not normally depend on GNU make.

Installing like 'gmake install MAKE=gmake' works.

The other targets (e.g. 'dist') are also handicapped by this problem.

I prefer to install GNU make as 'gmake' so that it does not shadow the
vendor make program, and makes portability testing easier.
