I have been using R for some time now and decided to have a go a compiling R
from source.

I have carefully followed the guidelines set out by Prof Ripley and others,
but I get the following message when I try to make:

	MkRules:92: *** missing separator.  Stop.

If I comment the line out, I get the same message for the next line.

I have searched on Google and many people have mentioned an issue with make
about spaces vs. tab marks, but this doesnot seem to be the problem.

I am working with Windows NT and trying to compile R version 1.6.1, can
anybody help?
