Hi, I was warned about the make utility when I tried
executing the configure script though I had already installed

*** It seems that you are not using GNU make. Some make tools have serious
The configure script seems to check the variable MAKE;
however, I think it is not necessary to print out this
warning after checking the variable --- only writing this in
the document clearly is ok.
0) Note that the following software should be installed
before building GnuPG:
GNU make (MANDATORY!!!)
We can easily stop the configure script from warning on the
make utility by setting the variable MAKE such as
% env MAKE=gmake ./configure ...
