Sorry for the long delay in replying to this.  I don't know much about 
cross-compilation, but the error from 'make' there looks like a simple 
error in our 'make depend' process.  That target '<command-line>' can 
simply be deleted in 'makefile'.  (It's a message printed by gcc versions 
newer than were commonly in use when we tested 5.8.8.)

Hope this helps,
