I think your latter suggestion is best. After all, older Macs might still need to use gmake, right?

In the README... I see this:

So... I tried using gmake, and it failed. "gmake not found".

I tried "make --version", and I see this:

        GNU Make 3.81

So... basically that is ALREADY GMAKE.

We can change the READ ME to this:

        Note: For FreeBSD, gmake should be used instead of make.

Or even better:

        Note: if "make --version" does not say "GNU Make" then use gmake instead.


It would have saved me a few hours of precious wasted time.
