That means that your makefile is not correctly structured.

You are invoking a recursive make but you have just plain "make" in the
command script.  You should be using the MAKE variable, $(MAKE), instead
of "make".

Alternatively you can prefix the command script with a "+" character.

See the GNU make manual for more info.
