The same on my system.

I agree. This is the standard IRIX 6.5.11m make. Ok, next time I use gmake.
For some reason the SGI make does not interpret the # after the escaped
newline character as start of a comment. That's why it stops with
'don't know how to make # (bu42).'

I did not complain about this warning, there are lots of this kind... I
included this lines only to document at which point the error occurs.
