Re: [vox-tech] compiling ripperX 2.0

It's hard to say where the problem exists.  Makefiles can be customized
in various ways according to the style of the programmer.

See if you can find a line that looks like:

   ripperX_plugin_tester.o: ripperX_plugin_tester.c
   <tab>gcc ripperX_plugin_tester.c -o ripperX_plugin_tester.o

and change it to:

   ripperX_plugin_tester.o: ripperX_plugin_tester.c
   <tab>gcc ripperX_plugin_tester.c -c -o ripperX_plugin_tester.o

but any of the above values can be made into a variable, so for all I
know, it can look like:

   $(OBJ): $(CFILES)
   <tab>$(CC) $(CFILES) -o $@

which doesn't exactly look like the previous lines.  So good luck!
