       jmkmf - runs jmake with the correct options


       jmkmf [ top-level dir [ current dir ] ]


       Jmkmf is a wrapper which calls jmake with the correct options, defining
       the symbols TOPDIR (location of the  top-level  directory)  and  CURDIR
       (current  directory).  The  generated  Makefile.SH  is then ran through
       /bin/sh to produce a Makefile.

       Jmkmf is useful when you generate a makefile for the first time.

       When ran without arguments, jmkmf will scan  the  directories  upwards,
       looking  for  a .package file marking the top of your sources.  It will
       then derive the  top-level  directory  and  the  name  of  the  current
       directory by itself.

       Once  you have a Makefile.SH generated by jmake, and have run Configure
       already, you can use make Makefile.SH to build  the  Makefile.SH  again
       and  make  Makefile to run the Makefile.SH through /bin/sh.  To use the
       recursive commands, you have to append an ā€™sā€™ at the end of the name as
       in make Makefiles.SH and make Makefiles.
