       jmkmf - runs jmake with the correct options


       jmkmf [ top-level dir [ current dir ] ]


       Jmkmf is a wrapper which calls jmake with the correct options, defining the symbols TOPDIR
       (location of the top-level  directory)  and  CURDIR  (current  directory).  The  generated
       Makefile.SH is then ran through /bin/sh to produce a Makefile.

       Jmkmf is useful when you generate a makefile for the first time.

       When  ran  without  arguments,  jmkmf  will  scan  the  directories upwards, looking for a
       .package file marking the top  of  your  sources.   It  will  then  derive  the  top-level
       directory and the name of the current directory by itself.

       Once  you  have  a Makefile.SH generated by jmake, and have run Configure already, you can
       use make Makefile.SH to  build  the  Makefile.SH  again  and  make  Makefile  to  run  the
       Makefile.SH  through /bin/sh.  To use the recursive commands, you have to append an 's' at
       the end of the name as in make Makefiles.SH and make Makefiles.
