Unhappy Sysvinit compile failed (this=MUCH more important than others)

When I did make -e LDFLAGS=-static; make install for sysvinit it said:

Makefile:112: *** missing separator. Stop.

check the Makefile itself for errors, or do:

make -e LDFLAGS=-static\
make install

is that hyphen on static needed? that could be a contibuting variable to why it won't compile.

It's indicating that something is wrong on line 112. It's looking for some kind of seperator which could be either a : or = or TAB or something else. Usually this happens when a command starts with spaces instead of a TAB.

And it's definetly -static
