Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Call makefile from shell script Post 302513277 by Corona688 on Tuesday 12th of April 2011 06:30:24 PM
make isn't and never was in those directories. make just checks inside the current directory for a file named makefile or Makefile.

You can make it check a different directory with -C

make -C /path/to/dirwithmakefileinit/

md(1)							    BSD General Commands Manual 						     md(1)

md -- process raw dependency files produced by cpp -MD SYNOPSIS
md [-d] [-f] [-m makefile] [-u makefile] [-o outputfile] [-v] [-x] [-D c|d|m|o|t|D] DESCRIPTION
The md command basically does two things: Process the raw dependency files produced by the cpp -MD option. There is one line in the file for every #include encountered, but there are repeats and patterns like .../dir1/../dir2 that appear which should reduce to .../dir2. md canonicalizes and flushes repeats from the depen- dency list. It also sorts the file names and "fills" them to a 78 character line. md also updates the makefile directly with the dependency information, so the .d file can be thrown away (see d option). This is done to save space. md assumes that dependency information in the makefile is sorted by .o file name and it procedes to merge in (add/or replace [as appropriate]) the new dependency lines that it has generated. For time effeciency, md assumes that any .d files it is given that were cre- ated before the creation date of the "makefile" were processed already. It ignores them unless the force flag [f] is given. FLAG SUMMARY
-d delete the .d file after it is processed -f force an update of the dependencies in the makefile even though the makefile is more recent than the .n file (This implies that md has been run already.) -m makefile specify the makefile to be upgraded. The defaults are makefile and then Makefile -u makefile like -m above, but the file will be created if necessary -o outputfile specify an output file for the dependencies other than a makefile -v set the verbose flag -x expunge old dependency info from makefile -D c|d|m|o|t|D subswitch for debugging. can be followed by any of "c", "d", "m", "o", "t", "D" meaning: c show file contents d show new dependency crunching m show generation of makefile o show files being opened t show time comparisons D show very low level debugging SEE ALSO
make(1) BUGS
Old, possibly not used by anyone. HISTORY
The md utility was written by Robert V Baron at Carnegie-Mellon University. BSD
June 2, 2019 BSD
