Dear all,

I'm running into trouble when I compile R-1.2.1 on the alphaev6-osf4.0 box
I'm using. I think I've resolved it, but just like to make sure I'm not
doing something stupid:

When running make, it stops at places saying
#make Permission denied
or something similar.
Grepping through Makefiles, I find that lines of the type
	@#$(MAKE) stamp-lo
and when I remove them, it compiles successfully. I assume that these are
commented out, but my make doesn't understand that for some reason, and
that's the reason for the problem. But of course, the # could play an
important role I'm not aware of, so I'm wondering: Am I right?
