My mistake.  The exact error message is:

Makefile:15: *** missing separator.  Stop.

I took a look at the site you listed and it seems that the ftp clients
on there are reliant on a library that isn't included with Windows.
I'd prefer to have a self-contained executable--a replacement for the
Windows ftp.exe that is capable of passive mode.
