The makefile you have requires GNU make, based on the "define / endef"

But, the make you're running is not GNU make; GNU make never prints any
error message such as the ones you've listed here.

Therefore, you'll need to install and run GNU make to fix your problem,
or else rewrite the makefile to be more portable.
