Summary0006195: Module manager doesn't work with FreeBSD systems
DescriptionReported by "rj1" in #unreal-support:

Installing modules using `./unrealircd module install third/<module>` doesn't work as expected on FreeBSD systems.
Running `gmake && gmake install` from the source directory seems to have corrected the issue indicating an error in the script in detecting the operating system, and which make commands to try.
Steps To ReproducePlease see additional information below
Additional InformationLog of what the script says when installing a module via the module manager:
irc@irc:~/unrealircd % ./unrealircd module install third/autovhost
Reading module repository list from '/home/irc/unrealircd/conf/modules.sources.list'...
Checking module repository
Downloading third/autovhost from
Test compiling third/autovhost...
Please use GNU Make (gmake) to build UnrealIRCd
Compiling third/autovhost...
Please use GNU Make (gmake) to build UnrealIRCd
Module third/autovhost compiled successfully
Running 'make install'...
Post-installation information for third/autovhost from the author:
 The module is installed, now all you need to do is add a 'loadmodule' line to your config file:
 loadmodule "third/autovhost";
 Then /rehash the IRCd.
 For usage information, refer to the module's documentation found at:

Hm, right, so it should detect "gmake" etc... like we do in ./Config for example... and then put that method in modulemanager.c

Fixed! Thanks for the report. I know it probably has been mentioned before.. somewhere... at some point in time... but then it all just scrolls off the screen at IRC and I forget about it, so this bug report is rather useful :D

commit 9a08e39bcabdbd9520538e949bf5d7a650657276 (HEAD -> unreal60_dev, origin/unreal60_dev, origin/HEAD)

    Fix modulemanager not working on FreeBSD (./unrealircd module install ...)
    and other systems where 'make' was not GNU Make.
    It now uses the same detection mechanism as in ./Config, which
    should be knsometimes... own to work.
