upon trying to force 'Makefile', i got this message:

make  all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/make-3.79.1'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `all-recursive'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/make-3.79.1'
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

hopefully, this is a problem with a more pedestrian solution :)
