Summary: Corrupt Makefile

Initial Comment:
Installing the gem on a Mac under MacPorts, with Ruby 1.8.6, I get the following error while the extension is building:

  Makefile:106: *** missing separator (did you mean TAB instead of 8 spaces?).  Stop.

A quick look at the generated libxml/Makefile reveals it is has multiple command lines that begin with spaces instead of a tab, which is illegal syntax.

Message:
Yup, the Makefile is auto-generated by Ruby.

Message:
Gah.  Never mind, this seems to be a bug in the 1.8.6
version of mkmf.rb.
