This occurs if you are using GNU make not under that name: it calls
make -w and the other make does not know about -w. (It heppens
to me on Solaris.) The fix is to MAKE=gmake in config.site and re-configure,
or as an environment variable, where gmake is whatever than GNU make is called.
I hope this is the right diagnosis!
