We've been having problems using Makefiles with Java, and 
Jigsaw was no exception.

The problem is that since all of the java programs are actually one 
script which attempts to determine what it is called by, when you
type make, make calls javac, and the script thinks its called by
the name "make" and returns with a make: not found message.

Is this because we are using csh/tcsh instead of ksh?
Is there a work around besides changing every javac in the Makefiles
to /bin/ksh /usr/java/bin/javac?

I've seen this behaviour on Solaris, AIX, and IRIX.
