GNUmakefile how to question


I am using Fedora 6. I have downloaded Java BeanBuilder and it works in that I can start the BeanBox program but nothing works: I can't load jar files or work with installed beans.

The reason I can not do these things is because I have been unsuccessful executing the make file called 'GNUmakefile' that was installed with the download.

How do I execute a makefile called GNUmakefile?

Thanks

cd to the directory that has the GNUmakefile and type the command make. FC6 has GNU make installed by default. When it executes it will look for the file named GNUmakefile first and execute the commands it contains.
