  Two possibilities:

  - SGI's make sends shell commands to your shell (specified in the
    SHELL environment variable), while every other make in the world
    uses /bin/sh by default. Put the line "SHELL=/bin/sh" at the top of
    a Makefile to tell SGI's make to use /bin/sh.

  - Dependency lines in your Makefile may begin with spaces.  Some
    'make's accept spaces; SGI's requires tabs.
