Next (to appease fish) I removed the dollar signs from the text, thus.

make "CC := (CROSS_COMPILE)gcc

                         PROGS := mei-amt-check

                         all: (PROGS)

                         rm -fr (PROGS)"

Which yielded the error following quoted.

"make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop."

So I saved that text (sans dollars as above) to a file named 
Makefile.txt, on my Desktop. Then I pointed a terminal window running 
fish at the Desktop, and I entered "make Makefile.txt". Which yielded 
the following quoted error!

"make: Nothing to be done for 'Makefile.txt'."
