How does this line and its context look like? This error normally
appaers if a tab before a command is missing. Example:

all:    $(GT_EXE) $(CGT_EXE)

$(GT_EXE):      $(GT_OBJ) $(GT_RES)
        $(CC) $(LDFLAGS) -o $@ $(GT_OBJ) $(GT_RES) $(GT_LIB)

$(CGT_EXE):     $(CGT_OBJ)
        $(CC) $(LDFLAGS) -o $@ $(CGT_OBJ) $(CGT_LIB)
^^^^^^^^ has to be a tab

I'm also getting massive problems here if i try to use make in a
nonbinary mounted directory. Perhaps that's your problem, too? Just
try to mount your source directory in binary mode.
bye, Michael
