I use redhat linux (kernel-2.2.12-20), 
following statement in Makefile does not work.
xdb_odbc_OBJECTS=    xdb_odbc.o \
<tab>xdb_odbc_file.o \        #this is line 14 
<tab>xdb_odbc_helper.o \
GNU make will output "Makefile:14: *** commands commence before first target.  
After I change <tab> to <space> , GNU make will output "Makefile:14: *** 
missing seperator.  Stop."
if I use gcc directly to compile and link this module , complile and link 
successfully, but I don't try to use this module .
