Good morning everyone, I'm attempting to compile nmap 6.25 under a Kubuntu
OS and am getting the following error:

Compiling libnbase
cd nbase && make
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/.fs.sync/opt/staging/source/nbase'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `snprintf\e[4m.o', needed by `libnbase.a'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/.fs.sync/opt/staging/source/nbase'
make: *** [nbase_build] Error 2

I'm currently using the following to compile:

configure --without-libdnet --without-zenmap
make install

Could this be a missing compile dependency?  Any help would be appreciated!

I don't know where the strange file name "snprintf\e[4m.o" is coming
from, but that's the problem. Try removing makefile.dep and building

"\e[4m" looks like a terminal escape sequence, so you might try turning
off terminal colors or anything special along those lines.
