Though my father quality-checked buildings--yet I remain unfamiliar with 
building Github stuff!

I couldn't see it in that listing.

Such a file was reported absent!

So I did as follows.


make "CC := $(CROSS_COMPILE)gcc
                         PROGS := mei-amt-check
                         all: $(PROGS)
                         rm -fr $(PROGS)"

Yielding the following error.

$(...) is not supported. In fish, please use '(CROSS_COMPILE)'.
fish: make "CC := $(CROSS_COMPILE)gcc
