Haha... sometimes native make is simply not usable IMHO :) I experienced some cool behaviours with some of them, like simply stopping compilation in a directory without error and trying to continue somewhere else - of course failing, because whole libs where missing. Be thankfull that there was an error, that’s easier to find I guess ;)

Also I thought gmake was a requirement for prefix...? or do I mess this up with prefix-launcher? (this one needs it for sure... native make cannot even parse the first 20 lines of the makefiles :))

Cheers, Markus
