Hrm...typical case: some lines(under Unix/Linux) in the makefile must
start with 1 unix tab, NOT 8 spaces. It is easy to check, if you are
directly connected to the server (eg. SLIP or PPP) and using mc. When
editing the file in mc, the colors show EXACTLY, where the tab is missing.
Oh yeah, you were having that kind of problem under Cygwin...dunno. But it
goes like this under Unix/Linux.
