Abstract: GNU make doesn't like MSDos file format
GNU Make stop with an error message when
trying to parse a Makefile which is
using the MSDos text-file format.
makefile:<NR>: *** missing separator. Stop.
Where <NR> is the last line in the
In order to get make to parse the file
you need to strip the makefile for
^M (Ctrl-M)'s and ^Z (Ctrl-Z).

My testing indicates that the only problem is the ^Z character at the
end of the file. MS-DOS text files with CR-LF pairs but WITHOUT ^Z
at the end are processed by Make OK.
Fixed in version 2.00.beta2 on 07/08/1995 23:20:09
