I've got this make error now, let me know if you see an easy solution.

  1. $ "makefile", line 4155: need an operator
  2. $ "makefile", line 4157: need an operator
  3. $ make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

not sure what to do besides opening the makefile and taking a look, I get this error executing make, make install, and make clean

Are you building from a tree you've checked out from Git (or Subversion, but the Subversion repository is no longer being maintained, so you shouldn't check out from Subversion any more), a source tree for a release, or something else?
