That said, however, make does not deal well with spaces in file

You're right, I know what caused the problem, a window's system path
(not user's path) that includes the make.exe
c:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Symbian\tools\make.exe
Since there wasn't /usr/local/bin/make or /usr/bin/make just searched
on paths imported from windows.
$ which make
