Teaching is always a good thing.

One thing that must be remembered is that MAKEFLAGS are sometimes
necessary to compile the software. For example, postfix requires the
use of MAKEFLAGS to enable SSL/TLS. I believe nethack requires a
MAKEFLAGS variable be set to compile for different GUIs.

Than for a man to hear the song of fools.
