Bug with make description?

I am using freebsd6.1-release. Did a configure and got an error saying make 3.80 is out of date and has a bug. Upgraded to 3.81 then to find a page full of errors, now I just read you should use gmake. Gmake works, so I’m confused to why it does not describe this in the README??

because this is a community supported project and there are only a limited number of people that are actively contributing.

i’m sure if you wrote some documentation for this it would be added to the project - if you know what’s wrong and how to fix it and can write up the docs, go for it!!!

I wasnt looking for excuses, I just wanted to let you know about it…

the best place to report a bug is at bugs.digium.com

unfortunately the dev team are unlikely to see your thread here.
