FS#6499 - fix make/gmake detection in Mac OS X/Darwin

A commit on 22 Nov 09:07 added detection for gmake so it can be used if available.

I assume on standard *nix distros the command “which” should return nothing if the program is not found. However, in mac os x (darwin) “which” returns with an error message when a program is not found.

$ which gmake
no gmake in /bin /sbin /usr/bin /usr/sbin

This creates problems for this if statement:

if [ -n “`which gmake`” ]; then



I have added a subsequent if statement which seems to fix the problem.

Let me know how I did! (first patch)

I suspect this behavior (the presence of an error message from "which") is not Darwin specific. Perhaps a BSD thing?
