This shouldn't happen; certainly in and Makefile here,
there's no path preceding the 'tm.h'. You might want to check your
makefile; grep for If there's no leading path there either,
i.e. it's just:

        $(SHELL) $(srcdir)/ tm.h

then Sun make's VPATH support is introducing the extra path where it
doesn't belong.

I'm pretty sure that Sun bundle the latest version of GNU make with
Solaris 2.8 as 'gmake' - if not, download, build and install it. Either
way, you should be typing 'gmake bootstrap' and not just 'gmake' or

On the other hand, I'm sure I used to build GCC-3.0 snapshots with Sun
make without problems. That's still my best guess, though - hope it
