There have been several reports including your very informative one
about the problem on making DeleGate/4.7.1.  Just as you pointed out,
the problem occurs when you use GNUmake and do make at the top
directory of DeleGate, so you can avoid it by using the standard make
or do make at src/ directory (or invoke make with -s option).
I found out that this problem is caused by GNUmake with strange
policy which automatically insert "-w" flag in MAKEFLAGS environment
variable which is not negated with "-s" option in command line.
So I did patch as enclosed at the end of this message.
