If you need Make for the DJGPP environment, this is not the right
place to post such reports.  The right place is the DJGPP news group,
comp.os.msdos.djgpp, or its email gateway address@hidden

I will answer your questions anyway.

This message comes from Windows: it means that your PATH is set up
incorrectly.  You should have your C:\DJGPP\BIN directory _before_
the Windows directories.  The result is that, instead of invoking the
DJGPP-supplied redir.exe, configure.bat invoked the Windows program
by the same name, and thus failed to realize that you already have a
working port of Make, and thus don't need to use dosbuild.bat.

dosbuild.bat wasn't updated in quite some time.  You should add


to the compilation command lines in, and then it will

This is GNU Make, but it's an older version.  You can safely use it,
if you want to develop DJGPP programs.

Btw, the latest official DJGPP port of GNU Make is version 3.79.1,
you should be able to find it here:
