Have you tried reading the manual?
GNU make actually comes with quite good documentation.

Yeah, my problem was trying to get automatic dependency checking combined 
with lack of patience.  I finally gave up and went to batch files.  I 
agree, the GNU make documentation is good. Maybe if I had a full Unix

The advantage is the number of existing tools and the ease of
building your own tools, by combining scripts, existing tools, etc.
