Any books about 'make'?

I'd like to find a good book about the GNU 'make' and Makefiles. There is of course the GNU documentation, but I was thinking more on a tutorial-like or step-by-step guide. Sometimes the GNU documentation can be a bit harsh to read.

I'm interested as well in a good document about how to build libraries in Windows platforms in C/C++ (either static or dll).

What would you suggest?

If you're not questioning my sanity, I'm not trying hard enough

I bought the O'Reilly book "Managing Projects with GNU Make" but the author's prose is really, really dry.

Try "GNU Make - A Program for Directing Recompilation" by Richard S. Stallman and Roland McGrath. Free Software Foundation 2000+. ISBN 1-882114-81-7. I only own two copies myself - one for home, one for office.
