I'm trying to compile the elf toolchain on redhat 6.2 and I'm not even getting very far in the makefile. I've downloaded the trunk, as of yesterday and I ran make. The error I get is

Makefile:5: *** missing separator.  Stop.

If I put a tab before it I get

Makefile:5: *** commands commence before first target.  Stop.

I've tried looking up things that could be causing this, but I'm not very familiar with the details of makefiles. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
