#
# SYNOPSIS
#
# AX_CHECK_GNU_MAKE()
#
# DESCRIPTION
#
# This macro searches for a GNU version of make. If a match is found, the
# makefile variable `ifGNUmake' is set to the empty string, otherwise it
# is set to "#". This is useful for including a special features in a
# Makefile, which cannot be handled by other versions of make. The
# variable _cv_gnu_make_command is set to the command to invoke GNU make
# if it exists, the empty string otherwise.
#
# Here is an example of its use:
#
# Makefile.in might contain:
#
# # A failsafe way of putting a dependency rule into a makefile
# $(DEPEND):
# $(CC) -MM $(srcdir)/*.c > $(DEPEND)
#
# @ifGNUmake@ ifeq ($(DEPEND),$(wildcard $(DEPEND)))
# @ifGNUmake@ include $(DEPEND)
# @ifGNUmake@ endif
#
# Then configure.in would normally contain:
#
# AX_CHECK_GNU_MAKE()
# AC_OUTPUT(Makefile)
#
# Then perhaps to cause gnu make to override any other make, we could do
# something like this (note that GNU make always looks for GNUmakefile
# first):
#
# if ! test x$_cv_gnu_make_command = x ; then
# mv Makefile GNUmakefile
# echo .DEFAULT: > Makefile ;
# echo \ $_cv_gnu_make_command \$@ >> Makefile;
# fi
#
# Then, if any (well almost any) other make is called, and GNU make also
# exists, then the other make wraps the GNU make.
