Dear list,

I have a problem to install the GRASS_0.1-4.tar.gz on RedHat7.1 Linux.

The gmake5 is missing. But I am not quite sure what it is? Is it a gnu 
version of MAKE? I could not locate it on my system and I do not know 
what is really meant.

Any experience?

I get the following message:


bash-2.04$ R CMD INSTALL -l /home/uleopold/lib/R/library/ GRASS_0.1-4.tar.gz
Installing *source* package `GRASS' ...
Your gmake5 is not on your current PATH.
Either add the directory it is in to your PATH,
or run "R INSTALL --configure-args=--gmake5=/.../gmake5 GRASS"
giving the fully qualified path to and name of your gmake5.
To install the interpreted interface, use:
"R INSTALL --configure-args=--interp GRASS"
ERROR: configuration failed for package `GRASS'
