Perhaps you and Mr. Tomasini make an excellent point. Because I cannot seem
to even pull up a version with either '--version' or '-v' (which is what is
listed in the man page on the system. I attributed to this to my own
ignorance, and perhaps this is not so much the case afterall.

After either 'make --version' or 'make -v' I receive:

So, I presume either I did something wrong or I need to update the make I am
working with. =)
