Hi Diego, Taco,

some parts of the TeX Live tree (libs/freetype2/ and libs/icu/ if I remember
correctly) require GNU make.  Thus the TL top-level configure checks for
this and produces a warning (--disable-native-texlive-build) or an error
(--enable-native-texlive-build, the default).  We think this is much better
than failing at a later stage of the build process.

If you have GNU make installed somewhere you should say
 	configure MAKE=/PATH/TO/GUN-MAKE ...
or whith the TL ./Build script
I suppose, the luatex ./build script is a variation of ./Build, so this
should also work with ./build.

If you don't have GNU make you might try
 	configure --disable-native-texlive-build ...
but then the build may fail at a later stage.

This ought to be mentioned in TL's top-level README.config -- yet to be done.
