  You left a blank line between the target and the rules.  That acts as a
separator, so make doesn't know your command line is part of the rule; it
thinks it's an entirely new top-level structure, and issues its generic
i-can't-parse-this error message.  Delete the blank line and you should be ok.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
