Huh!?  gmake is found in /usr/local/bin on our FreeBSD 4.5 system.
As far as I know, it comes with the operating system.

If gmake is really not on your system (check this with a 'locate gmake')
it will have to get installed.  You system administrator will need to
do this.

If all else fails, I will attempt to create a binary distribution of
LDM 5.2.2 that you can use.
