I wanted to ask what was the difference between make and bmake. Are they the
same in NetBSD but different in other OSes?
I see where NetBSD pkgsrc would need bmake to make sure of compatibility when
pkgsrc is ported outside NetBSD.
I ran "man" on NetBSD make, pkgsrc bmake, and Linux make, noticed that the use
of "+=" in variable assignments showed up in man pages for NetBSD make, pkgsrc
bmake, but not Linux make.
I could conceivably bootstrap pkgsrc in Linux just to get bmake even if I don't
want to use the pkgsrc framework in Linux, or I could find the source code and
build. Now I find pmake through a Google search on BSD make vs GNU make, and
I see, by running
that there are several makes including pmake, which may be what I was looking
