Chapter 3. GNU make

The GNU make utility, commonly abbreviated make, is a tool for controlling the generation of executables from source files. make automatically determines which parts of a complex program have changed and need to be recompiled. make uses configuration files called Makefiles to control the way programs are built.
Red Hat Developer Toolset is distributed with make 4.1. This version is more recent than the version included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements.

In Red Hat Developer Toolset, GNU make is provided by the devtoolset-6-make package and is automatically installed with devtoolset-6-toolchain as described in Section 1.5, “Installing Red Hat Developer Toolset”.
