Re: Insight 'make' problem.

hi bob

i haven't looked at the source, but here's a suggestion on tracking it down.
find the last compilation command.

add -save-temps and -v to the compilation.

e.g. CC="gcc -save-temps -v"

that creates a .i (for c) or .ii (for c++) file, that contains the *result*
of the cpp stage of compilation. i suspect that CHAR is already being
#define'd. examine the output (both screen and file) and good hunting.
