I've also seen that sort of message when a GNUmakefile is given to
an old-fashioned "make". What "make" are you using? Does
"make -v" show anything useful?
Heres the section in the Makefile....
163 config.check: config.h
164 echo Housekeeping file >$@
165 mkdir new 2>$(DEVNULL); exit 0
166 @-if $(FGREP) -n -e '`' config.h $(DEVNULL) | $(FGREP) -v
167 then \
168 echo;echo ' ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ WARNING^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^';\
169 echo ' * Having backquotes in there could be unhealthy!*';\
I'm a bit suspicious that it may not like the continued line (169)
because it starts with a TAB. Try without that TAB.
Also, do lines 164-166 have 3 leading spaces then a TAB? It sort
of looks that way. (It's hard to guess exactly what it looked like
before being numbered.)
