You seem to have tickled a real bug here. As the error states, make
found 8 spaces instead of a tab character at line 1392.
This code was updated a long time ago:
date: Sat Jan 31 17:31:21 2009 -0800
summary: 6799141: Build with --hash-style=both so that binaries can
work on SuSE 10
It is very odd that noone has encountered this.
You can fix it by editing the file and replacing the 8 spaces with a TAB.
