    * The INN Makefiles use the syntax "include FILE", rather than the
      syntax expected by some BSDish systems of ".include <FILE>".  If your
      system expects the latter syntax, the recommended solution is to
      install GNU make from <>.  You may have GNU
      make already installed as gmake, in which case using gmake rather than
      make to build INN should be sufficient.
