When you say "zsh v3.0", what does that mean?  Make doesn't care what
the user's shell is: it will always use /bin/sh as its shell unless you
change it.  So, did you set SHELL in your makefile, and/or did you
replace /bin/sh with zsh?

There's nothing wrong with that.

The error you're seeing is from the shell, not from make, which means
that your shell script is incorrect.  At the very least you'll have to
show us what make prints as a command to invoke, and the best thing
would be to post the entire make rule that is failing.
