Haven't had the error, but the usual suspects are:

 - You're getting the wrong make.  Follow the readme.packages
instructions for setting up your path, and make sure "make --version"
tells you you're running GNU Make.

 - Something has messed up your Makevars file.  Does it look normal in
a reasonable text editor?
