Haven't seen that one before, I think, but the knee-jerk reflex is to
ask you to try GNU make instead. If that's inconvenient, you should
probably first look into the definition of the variables that get
expanded on line 49 and see if they somehow got to contain an &.

The variable definitions are generally in Makeconf in the top build
