Synchronet supports building with GNU make only. On my Unix/Linux systems, the command to invoke GNU make would be
gmake. If the
gmake comman doesn't work, try executing
make -v and if you see something like the following, then use the
make command in place of
gmake for building Synchronet.

On some Unixes (e.g. Debian Linux), the GNU make command is
make instead of
gmake. Creating a symlink or an alias can resolve this issue easily.
