Yeah, I have gmake installed (SUNWgmake)

And just as you say, 'gmake' works.

What I don't get is: the SUNWgmake package actually install gmake as make in
/usr/gnu/bin too (GNU Make 3.81)

Maybe some  PATH variables do not include this gnu location in the makefiles

Cheers

Don’t EVER make the mistake that you can design something better than what
you get from ruthless massively parallel trial-and-error with a feedback
cycle. That’s giving your intelligence _much_ too much credit.
