Hi guys,

I have an embedded target with very little disk space (75 meg)
and I'd like to build nmap for it.  The normal './configure ; make'
incantation ends up with an out-of-disk-space error.

I then tried this:

   $ ./configure --prefix=$HOME/local
   [snip output]
   make nmap
   $ make ncat
   Makefile:375: makefile.dep: No such file or directory
   g++ -MM -I/usr/include/lua5.1 -I./libdnet-stripped/include

   make: Nothing to be done for `ncat'.

"make: Nothing to be done for `ncat'." is because there is a directory
called "ncat". You would get the same output if you did "make docs" or
"make mswin32". You need "make ncat_build" instead. Take a look at the
contents of Makefile.in.

Also, the general solution to this problem is to use a cross-compiler on
a system with more disk space.
