Re: compile error

Thanks for the tips Dave!  I followed the advice on removing the
makefile.dep file and attempted to re-compile, but got the same error.  I'm
not sure how to turn off coloring escape sequences in bash.  The only ones
I have set is an alias for 'ls' to show colors, but that shouldn't have any
effect on what I'm doing and no other packages have showed any behavior
problems during compilation.  Any other thoughts?

Good morning everyone, I'm attempting to compile nmap 6.25 under a
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

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.
