[Xymon] Installing 4.3.12 Solaris make install error

Installed 4.3.12 on my Solaris 10 test server today.
Compiling was fine, same procedure as 4.3.10

I got a minor error though...
To run the client tasks on the server I add
        include /usr/local/xymon/client/etc/clientlaunch.cfg
to [xymonclient] in the servers tasks.cfg
If a use lower case include xymonlaunch crashes.
2013-07-26 15:27:37 Task xymonclient terminated by signal 6
If I change to upper case INCLUDE it works fine
And I have to drop the xymonlaunch test as it will stay red...

Keep up the awesome work Henrik and other developers.

Thanks. Got it eventually.
Also just moved to 4.3.12
Was a little more complicated for me, because we were on 4.2.3.
4.2.3 was a tricksy version. It was a Xymon/Hobbit chimera, with some things moved to Xymon naming, and other stuff still on Hobbit.
But I got there in the end, and the downtime was minimal.
Now I think it's time to upgrade the clients.
We are still using 4.2.0 clients. :-)

You need to be using gmake if I'm not mistaken.

Incidentally, I built Xymon 4.3.12 today on both SPARC and x64 -- only the unresolved symbol allow_severity/deny_severity error like before (which I intended to rehash on the list).

It looks like the make you're using is unable to understand the "ifeq" construct.  You could try a different make if you have one installed - presumably you have "gmake" if you have "gcc" installed, and if you don't have gcc then this makefile won't work for you (it has CC=gcc).

You could try commenting out the "ifeq" stuff and leave one or other of the "CFLAGS=" lines (depending on the version of gcc you have).  But chances are, a version of make that doesn't work here will fail at many other points in the build process.

Any workaround?
