Why make showing these messages while compiling sane-backends?

Asked by Pavlushka on 2016-02-28

I tried to compile the sane-backends from source but getting the following messages after running make, to configure, I ran ./configure --enable-avahi BACKENDS='canon genesys test'

make[1]: Leaving directory /home/.../sane-backends/po'
Making all in testsuite
make[1]: Entering directory/home/.../sane-backends/testsuite' Making all in sanei make[2]: Entering directory /home/.../sane-backends/testsuite/sanei'

What's wrong with for all-am? and what these make messages stand for?

Okay, got it, make says what it does, if it has nothing to do, it says nothing to do.

To Rajin,
make a tool to compile package/software from source-code.
