The following GNUmakefile behaves differently in the new 3.81-1 build
compared to the 3.80-1 that was replaced. I did not find this subject
when I looked at the recent messages.
GNUmakefile:1: *** target pattern contains no `%'. Stop.
Which is right for cygwin? I have a context that is now very dependent
on 3.80-1's behavior. Is the context dependent on a mistake? Or is the
new 3.81-1 not doing something it should?
The actual GNUmakefile's use $(...) macros from environment variables
that have Windows style paths. I vastly simplified the above to make the
I simply replaced the make package with cygwin's setup.exe to go back
and forth, with the rest of the environment unchanged and current
according to setup.exe.
