gmake turns out not to be a solution to the "ar rv$(LIB)" problem, though.

ar rvlibXpm.a data.o create.o misc.o rgb.o scan.o parse.o hashtable.o XpmCrBufFrI.o XpmCrDataFrP.o XpmCrPFrBuf.o XpmRdFToI.o XpmWrFFrI.o XpmCrBufFrP.o XpmCrIFrBuf.o XpmCrPFrData.o XpmRdFToP.o XpmWrFFrP.o XpmCrDataFrI.o XpmCrIFrData.o XpmRdFToData.o XpmWrFFrData.o
