Right.  this should fix the immediate problem.  The 'bug' seems to be
that the Makefile lists the '$(OBJDIR)/%.o' target *first*.

Try swapping the order of the two targets above.  BSD make(1) considers
the first target the 'default', so when you just type 'make' it tries to
build a target named '$(OBJDIR)/%.o', which fails.
