Installing / upgrading GNU make from 3.80 to 3.81


Hi,

I need to install GNU make 3.81. I already have 3.80 but i need now 3.81, how do i install it. Is there a way to upgrade ?

In the download site http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/make/ i have downloaded
Code:
 make-3.81.tar.gz
But i also see something like
Code:
make-3.81.tar.gz.sig
what is this? looks like some signed stuff. Do i need this ?

please help me.

You give us very little information with which to help you. What distro are you running and what version of that distro? For example I'm running Debian Wheezy and I have make 3.81. No, you don't need to compile it. I assume the tarball you downloaded make-3.81.tar.gz contains the source code. Once you tell us what distro you're using we can help you with the package installation. I assume you're running a fairly old version of some distro that may need updating. Debian stable (Squeeze) which is quite conservative also has make 3.81.
ciao,
jdk

It would help if you told us which distro are you using.

RHEL 5.3 has make-3.81 by default.


( It's on install disk 1 : make-3.81-3.el5.i386.rpm ).
