Makefile problems: Missing seperator

not sure if this is the right section of the group to post this but Ive got some problems with a Makefile

I’m using a Makefile thats been generated on a Linux Machine using configure and Autoconf. The probelm is i need to alter the Makefile on the QNX OS to get rid of a couple of files which i dont want to be made anymore. Ive tried altering the Makefile by deleting the aforementioned files but as soon as i try to run it i get a missing seperator error. Is it actually possible to alter a Configure generated Makefile in this way?

please help, thanks

Make sure you are using “tab” instead of “spaces” in the
beginning of the line.
