k.  what you've done (i think) is use a text editor that isn't friendly
towards tabs.  betcha used win95/nt's dos-edit :(
gnu make expects tabs delimiting a make rule and the actions to build that
rule:
foo.o: foo.c foo.h
[tab]gcc -c foo.c
^^^ this must be a tab.  spaces don't cut it here.
so use a tab-friendly editor - a good example is emacs, or if you don't have
the space, download JED, which is a smaller emacs clone that's tab-friendly.
either that, or write a program/script to translate beginning-of-line-spaces
to tabs...
