FS#10108 - Use "gmake -r" and "make -r" as $make variables for

This patch should fix any issues with people unable to build on some Unix systems. I needed to use this fix to get past some issues with Apple’s gmake build in Mac OS X 10.5.6; using the -r option makes gmake and make ignore their own rules and use the rules set by, allowing the dev environment to build.

This shouldn’t break anything in Linux, but it’s worth testing it before I blindly decide to commit it. Any users of other Unix or Unix-like systems (Solaris, *BSD, etc.) should also give this patch a try as well.

This seems to work here, on debian unstable 64bit

Works too on my ubuntu jaunty 32bit.

So far so good. We need another *nix owner to chime in… preferably someone with FreeBSD, perhaps.

I guess you can wait ages for that.

I guess, if you want to play safe, you can apply this only to make and not gmake (unless mac has gmake).

Mac OS X has gmake, hence the patch.

If it works for other Mac users as well, in it goes.
