No; those makefiles can only work with GNU Make. You can easily tell
by looking at them since they use make functions like call, etc. all
over the place, plus pattern rules and all sorts of fancy things :).
I see - thanks for pointing that out (I don't have much experience with
Makefiles as you can probably tell). I guess that makes the task of
telling whether 'windres' is on the Windows path easier then, because
GNU Make extensions can be used in mk/Windows32.mk to do it.
I'll try and get something working and update the Basic.mk patch with
windres being optional, like in configure and build_w32.bat.
If you don't already have GNU Make, you would use one of the other
methods (like build_w32.bat) to create one. Then after that you can
use these makefiles.
Indeed, it makes sense, thanks for the overall explanation.
