I don't know, but why don't you rather try the new 'fpmake' build
system. From what I have seen, it's much easier to use that Makefiles
- once you have a nice example to work from.

Henry Vermaak created a fpmake.pas example for fpGUI. You can find it here...


It has sections that have OS specific handling for Windows and Linux.
The fpmake build system was designed to replace Makefile's and have
been available since fpc 2.2.0 I believe.
