Your attachment was corrupted.  It's simplest if you just include the
makefile as a normal text file, or attach it using something basic like
text/plain, rather than trying to send a compressed tar file, unless the
makefile is really large (which it doesn't seem like this one is).

Without being able to see the rules you're using there's little comment
I can make.

When re-sending your question, please be sure to include basic
information such as what version of GNU make you're using, what
operating system and OS version you're using, etc.

If I understand this correctly, you're right, .DELETE_ON_ERROR wouldn't
be appropriate here.
