Thank you to all that responded!
I had tried to use GNU make as well as the
"pre-rolled" versions at Sunfreeware.com.
I managed to solve this one on my own. It turns out there
was a line in the makefile that needed to be commented out.
the line is as follows:
gtk_private_sources = $(strip )
as there are no sources being passed to this function, it is
what produced the error. After commenting this line out, the
sources compiled and installed. Further, libraries which
rely on GTK+ are also compiling just fine!
