Makefile Error: Unknown file type


Hi,

I am trying to parse INI file !!! And using the INI parser given on the web by Nicholas Devillard's INI parser.

I tried running it on the server and did a Make and got the following error:

Code:
compiling src/iniparser.c ...
compiling src/dictionary.c ...
compiling src/strlib.c ...
r - iniparser.o
r - dictionary.o
r - strlib.o
ar: writing libiniparser.a
ld: warning: option -o appears more than once, first setting taken
ld: fatal: file /usr/lib: unknown file type
ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to libiniparser.so.0
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `libiniparser.so'
Here is my Makefile

Code:
#
# iniparser Makefile
#

# Compiler settings
CC      = gcc
CFLAGS  = -O3 -fPIC

# Ar settings to build the library
AR          = ar
ARFLAGS = rcv

SHLD = ${CC} ${CFLAGS}
LDSHFLAGS = -shared -Wl,-Bsymbolic  -Wl,-rpath -Wl,/usr/lib -Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib
LDFLAGS = -Wl,-rpath -Wl,/usr/lib -Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib

# Set RANLIB to ranlib on systems that require it (Sun OS < 4, Mac OSX)
# RANLIB  = ranlib
RANLIB = true

RM      = rm -f


# Implicit rules

SUFFIXES = .o .c .h .a .so .sl

COMPILE.c=$(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c
.c.o:
        @(echo "compiling $< ...")
        @($(COMPILE.c) -o $@ $<)


SRCS = src/iniparser.c \
           src/dictionary.c \
           src/strlib.c

OBJS = $(SRCS:.c=.o)


default:        libiniparser.a libiniparser.so

libiniparser.a: $(OBJS)
        @($(AR) $(ARFLAGS) libiniparser.a $(OBJS))
        @($(RANLIB) libiniparser.a)

libiniparser.so:        $(OBJS)
        @$(SHLD) $(LDSHFLAGS) -o $@.0 $(OBJS) $(LDFLAGS) \
                -Wl,-soname=`basename $@`.0

clean:
        $(RM) $(OBJS)

veryclean:
        $(RM) $(OBJS) libiniparser.a libiniparser.so*
        rm -rf ./html ; mkdir html
        cd test ; $(MAKE) veryclean

docs:
        @(cd doc ; $(MAKE))

check:
        @(cd test ; $(MAKE))
~

/usr/lib is a directory. It could be there's a null environment variable at work, like $FILE that was not initialized properly.
