It's hard to tell what the problem is without looking at your Makefile or
knowing what the error is, but my first guess would be that you don't have a
TAB character where you need one.  For example:

    spells.o utils.o weather.o \

Right before the alias.o there needs to be a TAB, not spaces.

Also on the line
     $(CC) -c $(CFLAGS) act.comm.c

make sure there's a tab in front, no spaces.

Another common error is... if you're editting your files in DOS and FTPing
or copying them to a Unix environment, you *must* remove the extra carriage
returns DOS ASCII puts at the end of lines (this has been mention soooo many
times before.  :)   For FTP, just FTP them as ASCII, not Binary.  Otherwise,
you'll need to find an editor that converts from DOS to UNIX format.
