Make is a tool to build software from source code (which usually includes compiling). makefiles contain the instructions to build packages, and these are sometimes generated with Autotools.


The emake function should be used to call make.

CODE Example of using emake in an ebuild
src_compile() {

	pushd src/native/unix || die
		emake AR="$(tc-getAR)"
