using *nix you must use GNU Make... under some systems (Such a most BSDs) this
is optional and installed as "gmake" rather than "make".
When building from the source archive, need to set SRC_ROOT to the extracted
path name to locate the bundled 3rd party sources like so:
make SRC_ROOT=/path/to/syncterm-20120226
This can be done using backticks as well:
make SRC_ROOT=`cd .. ; pwd`
make SRC_ROOT=`realpath ..`
Refer to src/build/Common.gmake or src/build/Common.bmake for details of some
of the make options the build system supports.
