The build failed for me 'with a syntax error before "__dead2" '.
Are there any special include files I am supposed to have?
I had trouble with the autoconf version I had installed and had to
upgrade to the latest.
Then I was able to move past, autoconf, automake, configure.
Whhen I went to make I got that error. It looks like __dead2 is a
#define in cdefs.h found in some BSD installs. I am building on RedHat
Enterprise Linux 4 and the sys/cdefs.h file does not see to define
Is this make file supposed to build on Linux. If so are there pe-reqs
before I can build it.

Since there seems to be so much interest in running FreeBSD
make(1) on other platforms, I've committed what I have
done so far to <http://hg.hellug.gr/bmake/gker>. It's not
a full port of FreeBSD make(1) yet, but anyone interested
to help is invited to hop in and give me a hand :)
The main goal of this `project' is to have a fully
buildable version of FreeBSD make(1) on Linux and Solaris,
so that one can build FreeBSD-like makefiles by running:
/usr/local/bin/bmake [ -f BSDmakefile ]
