 actually, I did not. But the actual problem is there indeed: p0f
 auto-detects if gmake is available in Build, trying to run it without
 arguments. Then it defaults to using gmake if it is available.
 I guess we have at least two options then:
 - patching Build to disable this check,
 - apply my patch, with which gmake can still build the project.
