I guess you have been downloading from Mark Lake's web site. This tool is
not fully updated to GRASS 5: Some month ago we changed
$(BIN_CONTRIB_CMD) to $(BIN_CMD)
So you have to *adjust* the variable accordingly in Gmakefile. Then the
strange error message will disappear (I know that message).
Probably Mark could put such a modified version online (hi Mark!).
Hope this helps,
