There is extra code in the top-level makefile that detects if you don't 
run GNU make, tries to find it, and calls it instead.  But you need to 
have it installed somewhere.  That code, however, is not replicated in 
each directory of the source tree.

In the past, we have usually refered to the GNU make program as "gmake", 
but I see an increasing number of systems, including my own, that no 
longer installs GNU make as "gmake" but only as "make".  So basically 
you just need to be careful what you call.
