why isn't this source building? don't understand error


Hey guys,

I have some source for a linksys wap54g access point, I have successfully built the source before, but for some reason it is not building now and I don't understand the error:
Code:
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/hedpe/school/misc/linksys/WAP54G/src/pmon/tools'
gcc  -o mklst mklst.c
make[2]: *** read jobs pipe: Is a directory.  Stop.
make[2]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
mklst.c: In function ‘main’:
mklst.c:12: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function ‘exit’
mklst.c:20: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function ‘exit’
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/hedpe/school/misc/linksys/WAP54G/src/pmon/tools'
make[1]: *** [tools] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/hedpe/school/misc/linksys/WAP54G/src/pmon'
make: *** [all] Error 2
The whole output is here:

Thanks!

Dude, you should have posted the whole output. The actual error occurs on line 113. It seems that make mistakenly thinks a dependency (include file) is a target.
