make Fatal error message

I was installing a security application named "aide"

and after successfully running ./configure I received a Fatal error message after running make:

devuiaccess01:/var/tmp/security_tools/aide-0.10>sudo make
make all-recursive
Making all in src
mksh: Fatal error in reader: = missing from replacement macro reference
Current working directory /var/tmp/security_tools/aide-0.10/src
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all-recursive'
Current working directory /var/tmp/security_tools/aide-0.10
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all-recursive-am'

Is there a solution or work around for this problem?

Re: make Fatal error message

It's hard to say much without seeing the
"make" file, but apparently it's failing.

You might try again with "make -n" to see
what it would have done. You might also
complain to whoever provided "aide".

Stephen,

No idea about your Aide application, but as you said it is a security application, I would suggest to update your system with the latest patches as there are so many patches has been released related to security issues.

Re: make Fatal error message

Yes, clearly as Steven said, the make file need to be verified.
