Well, I tried this shell session:

:~$ export TARGET = i386-pc-solaris2.11
bash: export: `=': not a valid identifier
bash: export: `i386-pc-solaris2.11': not a valid identifier
:~$ export TARGET=i386-pc-solaris2.11

The first export was taken verbatim from your email message. The second was  
with extraneous spacing removed. Try removing the spaces in the makefile  
and see what happens afterward.
