How to issuing a alias command from within a makefile

Hi all,

In one of my makefile I need to execute a command that is a alias in the Linux system. When I do that it get the an error message.

The related part of the makefile lock like (in the example I just use the ll command).


then when I do

>make env_setup

I get the following output

make: execvp: ll: Permission denied
make: *** [env_setup] Error 127

So how do i issue an alias command from within a makefile?

Thanks in advance
Mogens Lyngsie.

The easiest (though maybe not the most efficient) way to do it would be just to expand out the alias.
