Hi.
 I have a FreeBSD 6.2, installed it from the distribution disks, no
changes by me.

There is a "make" and a "gmake" installed on it. They report that they
are the same programm, but in fact they behave completely different.
In fact only "gmake" behaves
like "GNU make" should behave and only with "gmake"
I succeed to build serious projects.

 What happens here ?  What I the "make", where did it come from ?

How do I cause to system "make" behave as "gmake" ?

Thanks, regards,
 Dima.

P.S.  see their output:
