    I use ubuntu 9 and the gnu make is installed as make.
    but you need to copy the GNUmakefile to makefile.

    make -f GNUmakefile should work just fine. NO need to copy or rename GNUmakefile.

    This drives me nuts... I didn't see this in your setup instructions...

    You don't normally need to use the '-f' option.

    I hear you, it drove me nuts too, and I could swear I didn't see it in
    the instructions, but there is a spot on the documentation that says
    something about gnumake may be called make, if you read the fine details
    of the packages, sometimes they'll say gnumake and install it telling you
    it's called make, which was fine by me, provided that it worked like make.
    If it's GNUMake renamed as Make, why not have it support all files as GNU
    Make as is? There is versions of Make and GnuMake out there, Make is not
    allways GNU Make, so if you want to make a Make version of GNUMake, then
    in the installation, create a symbolic link to gnumake and have the program
    check upon startup if it was called via make or gnumake and setup the
    filename and command line appropriately, or just check for both files....

    Anything you know really well generally is better. :)

    But not knowing something well definitly contributes to folks dislike of
    said thing. :-)

    Which, while incorrect, still has nothing to do with Linux or how it's supposed
    to be better.
