Somewhat OT - A Makefile Question



Not strictly FBSD, but ...

Within a makefile, I need to assign the name of a program as in:

FOO = "bar".

The problem is that 'bar' may also be know as, say, "bar.sh". Worse still
both "bar" and "bar.sh" can exist with one linked to the other. Is there
a simple way to determine which form "bar" or "bar.sh" on on a given
system *at the time the make is run*? If both exist, I will pick
one arbitrarily, I just don't want the detection mechanism to fail when
this is the case. For example I don't think this works when both
are there:

FOO = $(shell `which bar bar.sh)

Thanks,
