"make Makefile" do nothing

  I read an article about newlib in http://www.embedded.com and I am very
exciting that I can build an "micro" libc to have fun with it. My target
is a desktop PC, x86, RH Linux 7.1.

  So I downloaded newlib-1.9.0, this is what I did:

$ cd newlib-1.9.0
$ mkdir ../newlib-test
$ cd ../newlib-test
$ ../newlib-1.9.0/configure
$ make

configure can regonize I my PC and create directories such as
i686-pc-linux-gnu/ and etc/. But when I type 'make', it responses with
"Nothing to be done for 'all'." What's wrong? Do I miss something?

  Please reply to my email.

  Thanks in advance.
