Stupid questions: Are you running this as root? Why? And what is your $SHELL variable set to?
This smells like the shell is being overly officious about syntax checking un-executed commands. If that's what is happening, then what needs to be done is to redesign the recursion macros. Please let me know.

cc: (bcc: Jonathan S Shapiro/Watson/IBM) Subject: make fails (is this list still alive?)
I just CVS'ed the sources and make dies pretty darn quickly. Since I am assuming that CVS gets me the latest and greatest I must have something set up incorrectly.
It looks as though the DIRS variable in makerules.mk isn't set and it's not obvious to me that I should be setting it. I took the include line out of legal/license/GNU/Makefile and it dies with the same problem somewhere else.
Any ideas ?
P.S. Yes I set the environment variables
soggy:/usr/local/eros/src# make -k install
make: Entering directory `/usr/local/eros/src/legal'
make: Entering directory `/usr/local/eros/src/legal/license'
make: Entering directory `/usr/local/eros/src/legal/license/GNU'
/bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `;'
/bin/sh: -c: line 1: `if [ -n "" ]; then for i in ; do if [ -d "$i" ]; then
make -C $i install; if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then echo "*** RECURSIVE BUILD STOPS ***"; exit 1; fi; fi; done; fi'
