While building, make aborts with "expand.c:489: allocated_variable_append: Assertion ... failed,"


I find the following answer about this error in FAQ :


Your development system is using a very old version of the “make” package that has bugs and you've just hit one.       You   need to upgrade the “make” package on your system as this is certainly not a bug in our uClinux distribution...


But how to update "make" package? I log on make homepage and didn't find answer. PLS give me some instruction.

Message: 51306    that is dependent on the distribution you're using.  you'll have to ask on the distribution's home page.  otherwise you'll have compile the source tarball and install it by hand.  the make package will have documentation on how to compile/install it yourself.
