They _are_ different.
Yes, I forgot there was an alias. See at the bottom of the message.

This is very interesting observation, could you expand on this?

Well, I don't want to make claims without basis, as it is based only
on my memories :).
I so completely switched to gmake during the winter that I even forgot
I have an alias.

I didn't succeeded to compile projects from my univ studies, but I
afraid I use all those gnu extensions. I _think_ I didn't succeeded to
compile the DEAL.II lib without gmake.
These are projects that don't use the "recursive make" paradigm, at least not in
all places. They "-include" makefiles from lower hierarchies, but I
afraid gnu extension
sit there in every place. Not shure, though ...
