I have the following problem with compilation on Solaris-10/SPARC.

The top level nmap directory Makefile works correctly only with GNU
make.  However, the lower level stuff, like the included lua and
libpcap, have Makefiles which work only with Solaris make, so the
top level make fails when it tries to use the GNU make on these
directories. I can compile the included directories as a separate
exercise individually using Solaris make (/usr/ccs/bin/make), but
I'm having trouble untangling the nmap Makefile so that it doesn't
try to compile them again using GNU make and thus exiting on error.

Advice/assistance would be appreciated.  I can probably load lua,
pcap, etc., separately from source, then use the compiler switches,
but isn't there a better way?  How about a Makefile.in for each
subdirectory that is compatible with GNU make?

The makefiles in subdirectories should be compatible with GNU Make.
That's what everyone uses to build them, anyway. What version of GNU
Make do you have? Please send the error messages you get in the
