Hi,
I have downloaded the 1.8.4 source code tar file but I am having an issue 
getting it to compile. I have tried running a simple make which resulted in:
dmake: Fatal error in reader: Makefile, line 352: Unexpected end of line 
seen
Looking at line 352 looks like this:
 
*GIT-VERSION-FILE: FORCE
 @$(SHELL_PATH) ./GIT-VERSION-GEN
-include GIT-VERSION-FILE
*
I joined the last two lines together to give
*GIT-VERSION-FILE: FORCE
 @$(SHELL_PATH) ./GIT-VERSION-GEN -include GIT-VERSION-FILE*
** 
run make again and I get:
dmake: Fatal error in reader: Makefile, line 358: Badly formed macro 
assignment
Looking at line 358 it has:
*STRIP ?= strip*
I have never seen this in a makefile before, so I have assumed that it is a 
mistake and I have removed the question mark. Running make again I get:
dmake: Fatal error in reader: Makefile, line 398: Unexpected end of line 
seen
Line 398 reads:
export prefix bindir sharedir sysconfdir gitwebdir localedir
I cant see anything wrong with this line. Can anyone help? Has anyone 
installed this on Solaris 8?
I am using the Sun C 5.7 compiler.
Thanks
