make fails ambiguously if the Makefile has non-tab whitespace after a
multiline variable definition that gets expanded to the target of a
  Makefile:12: *** commands commence before first target.  Stop.
  (The error number varies between 12,13,14 or even 28 (tabstop) error)

It should pinpoint the error (with line number).

GNU Make version 3.79.1, by Richard Stallman and Roland McGrath.
Built for sparc-sun-solaris2.6
Running on Solaris 8.

Thanks a lot guys!
