It's not tabbed in the makefile you provided.  However other lines ARE
tabbed in that makefile.

Also, it's impossible for that line to begin with a TAB _and_ get that
error message.

A line beginning with a TAB in that position (after a target definition)
is always considered to be a shell command line and the contents of
command lines are not expanded here, and they are certainly never
considered to be target definitions.

That error is ONLY generated when parsing a target definition line.  It
means that the line contains more than two (unescaped) colon characters,
which is perfectly fine in a shell command line but quite illegal in a
make target specification.

So, either that line does NOT begin with a TAB, or GNU make has given
you the wrong line number, or you have miscalculated which line in the
makefile is line #97.
