I don't know how the Makefile was generated, but mine only has comments 
or blank lines from line 17 to line 57.  The Makefile is generated, so 
soemthing is not creating that file correctly.  qp might try deleting 
the xc tree and re-extracting and then building without a host.def file. 
 It's optional so all the defaults are used.
