    Angry make command gives different O/P on desktop & Laptop


    Hi all ,
    I am installing binutils -2.21 on my desktop (Centos 6) & laptop (SUSE 11.3) both.....
    the ./configure o/p resembles on both the system.
    But the issue with make command o/p remains as it is (Even after installing all the packages)


    a) the make command o/p form DESKTOP + CENTOS is similar to :-
    TEST:make
    make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/binutils-build'
    mkdir -p -- ./intl
    Configuring in ./intl
    configure: creating cache ./config.cache
    checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking whether NLS is requested... no


    b) the make command o/p from Laptop + Suse is similar to :-
    make: Warning: File `../binutils-2.21/Makefile.in' has modification time 6.9e+06 s in the future

    CONFIG_SHELL="/bin/sh" /bin/sh ./config.status --recheck
    running CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/sh /bin/sh ../binutils-2.21/configure --target=i686-lfs-linux-gnu --prefix=/tools --disable-nls target_alias=i686-lfs-linux-gnu --no-create --no-recursion
    checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
    checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
    checking target system type... i686-lfs-linux-gnu
    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking whether ln works... yes
    checking whether ln -s works... yes
    checking for a sed that does not truncate output... /bin//sed

    Can you please let me know what might be the reason for this behavior ............

    No worries

    My guess is, that the time of the laptop and/or desktop is/are off.
    Code:
    make: Warning: File `../binutils-2.21/Makefile.in' has modification time 6.9e+06 s in the future
    So this Makefile.in is discarded and recreated.
