Did you do what the error message tell you to do? :-)

>> Makefile:23: 'make SHELL=/bin/bash'.

If your SHELL env var is defined to another shell, then eventhough you
explicitly run bash by typing bash, make will spawn sub processes using
what the SHELL env var tell it to use.  That's probably where you are
getting errors.
