You probably have a script or shell alias getting in between you and the
real make. Please run "type make ; which -a make" in a bash shell and show us
Thanks for the reply (smiled on the "weird problem symptoms" summation).
The result is:
type make; which -a make
make is aliased to `settitle Making $(basename $PWD) && make "$@"'
I groaned when I saw this as it is obvious the $(PWD) is feeding
basename and that's the "make" error. Thanks.
However, I am still trying to understand why this potentially incorrect
alias is creating text output to the screen which can't be redirected as
it isn't stdout or stderr ... or "3/4/5" as someone suggested I test.
