I also wanted to say, this is wrong as written here... you don't want to
give Makefile as a target to be built.

You should just run "make" with no arguments.  Make will read a file named
"Makefile" by default.  Only if your makefile is named something non-
standard do you need to put it on the command line, and then you must use
the "-f" option:

  make -f mymakefile
