 This indicates that you have carriage returns in your makefile in
addition to line feeds.
I first encountered this with some included dependency makefiles that
were generated
automatically and filtered through various pipes and redirections.
Unfortunately, I
could not find a way to get around the inclusion of <CR> via a
redirection.  I suspect
it has to do with the bash binary v. text issues that have been
discussed in other threads.
