That was simple enough.  Makes me feel like it was something I should 
have known.  Sure it was.

The "make" tool is apparently a "must  learn" function.  I just opened 
the man page
and was directed to the "Make -A Tutorial" in 
/usr/share/doc/psd/12.make.  The tutorial discusses PMake.
Is this a recommended source of learninging material for make?   Can you 
suggest others?

Thanks so much for your help.
