builtins.mak

I have set up a directory structure to put the .obj files in after running make and instead of putting the .obj in the subdirectory i wanted, it is put in the same directory thatI ran make from. I changed the builtins.mak file by changing the reference to the .obj files and now when I compile, I get a "FATAL: Command arguments too long!" error and I don't get it with the old builtins.mak. I compared the two and the only changes I see are dealing with the """ .c.obj:$(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c -o$@  $&.c" and the original is ".c.obj:$(CC) $(CFLAGS) /c $&.c". Do I have a problem with the switches like "/c" or "-o$@"??? Any help is appreciated.

I think your problem is with the "$@". There some odd things about single-char macros and I'm not sure that you don't have to use parens with it.

  You might try "$(@R)" and add the ".obj" yourself.

  As far as the fatal error goes, if I'm right about the above, then because the "$@" is not valid, the parser is thrown off and the end of that line isn't where you think it is (sort of like when you do something like:
   printf("the number is %d, n);
   strcpy(x, "Hello");
the missing quote in the printf raises compiler hell.)
