Bug #8695

CompilationMakefile for 1.9.3-p448 and 2.0.0-p247 produces "Inconsistent rules lines" errors on HP-UX 9000/800

ruby -v:N/A Backport:1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN


I was following the instructions in the README file for the compilation of Ruby version2.0.0-p247. The problem is also reproducible for the 1.9.3-p448 installation. Because of this error, I cannot install either version of Ruby.

The Makefile produced by the configuration utility, when run with Gnumake 3.82, errors out as follows:

        Makefile:748: *** target file `clean-ext' has both : and :: entries.  Stop.

When run with the standard HP UNIX make, it produces:

        Inconsistent rules lines for `clean-ext'
        Inconsistent rules lines for `distclean-ext'
        MAKE=make /bin/sh ./config.status
        config.status: creating Makefile
        Makefile unchanged
        Make: Cannot load compiling.  Stop.
        *** Error exit code 1


The machine specs are as follows:

HP-UX B.11.11 U 9000/800

I have attached the Makefile below. Clearly this is an input error to target in the Makefile, but I am not familiar enough with Make to fix it myself.
