Hi there,

using the make to produce the manual, usually fails when not used on
nix-systems. The rather simple fix, is to include a 


statement. Otherwise, make uses the shell variable set in the
environment. On OS/2 or NT, this variabe should point to a valid
unix-shell executable, i.e.


Although this solved the syntax problems, the process runs out of
memory when translating the glossary (the infamous
double_the_memory_need by forking problem <g>), because the heap
memory of OS/2 is limited to 64 MB.
