Hello.
According to the manual of GNU make, recursive make commands should always use the variable MAKE, not the explicit command name 'make'. The value of this variable is the file name with which make was invoked. Using of explicit 'make' command for recursive calls may cause problems when non-default make utility is used (not the /usr/bin/make).
