The problem might not be *exactly* on that line but some lines before if the
issue is e.g., a missing parenthesis or quote or GNU-specific construct. Take a
closer look at the lines in the Makefile around that area and see if you can
spot something untoward. We try to keep the makefile compatible with non-GNU
make, but it occasionally happens that a GNUism slips in.
