Could you try to limit your line length to < 80 characters, please?

This looks like you're trying to make it with GNU make.  I've just
tried on my (2.2 current) system, and get:

=== root@freebie (/dev/ttyp3) /sys/compile/FREEBIE 21 -> wh make
-r-xr-xr-x  1 bin   bin     86016 Sep 13 03:01 /usr/bin/make  <- BSD make
-rwxr-xr-x  3 grog  wheel  176128 Nov 25  1993 /opt/bin/make  <- GNU make
=== root@freebie (/dev/ttyp3) /sys/compile/FREEBIE 22 -> /opt/bin/make
Makefile:26: *** missing separator.  Stop.
=== root@freebie (/dev/ttyp3) /sys/compile/FREEBIE 23 -> /usr/bin/make
`kernel' is up to date.
=== root@freebie (/dev/ttyp3) /sys/compile/FREEBIE 23 -> 

On my system, line 26 of the Makefile is:
		
	.if exists(./@/.)

Is this what you have at line 24?
