gmake does not require gmake to build. If it did, how could you build it for the first time?

At one point, someone had to do something like:

for file in *.c
do cc -O -c $file
done
cc -o gmake *.o

What becomes more fun is trying to bootstrap something more fundamental to the compiler toolchain, such as the assembler... :-)
