Installing gmake seems to have cleared up this problem. I'm filing a bug because the INSTALL document at:


makes no mention of gmake as a (possible) requirement on some platforms.

If you are wondering what choked the OpenBSD make utility, line 8849 is the last "fi" statement associated with the target


The target

mostlyclean-recursive clean-recursive distclean-recursive \

follows immediately after a blank line.

The compile just finished while I was reporting this. "make check" fails with the same error. "gmake check" is now busy grinding away.

Resolution: either make the Makefile more portable, or document gmake as a possible requirement on some platforms.
