Most times the makefile can be modified just by replacing the old filenames with the new. say you are taking the old makefile from tempsensor and you want to use it with foo.c...

just replace every tempsensor filename with foo.c and place the file in the same directory as the foo.c file and make it.

You have to use TABs not spaces, if you cut and paste you will have spaces not tabs.

I'll try to illustrate:

GCCFLAGS=-g -Os -Wall -mmcu=atmega168 
LINKFLAGS=-Wl,-u,vfprintf -lprintf_flt -Wl,-u,vfscanf -lscanf_flt -lm
#AVRDUDEFLAGS=-c avr109 -p m168 -b 115200 -P /dev/ttyUSB0
AVRDUDEFLAGS=-c avr109 -p m168 -F -b 115200 -P /dev/cu.PL2303-0000101D
LINKOBJECTS=../libnerdkits/delay.o ../libnerdkits/lcd.o ../libnerdkits/uart.o

ProgramName = initialload
all:    $(ProgramName)-upload

$(ProgramName).hex: $(ProgramName).c
[TAB]   make -C ../libnerdkits
[TAB]   avr-gcc ${GCCFLAGS} ${LINKFLAGS} -o $(ProgramName).o $(ProgramName).c ${LINKOBJECTS}
[TAB]   avr-objcopy -j .text -O ihex $(ProgramName).o $(ProgramName).hex

$(ProgramName).ass: $(ProgramName).hex
[TAB]   avr-objdump -S -d $(ProgramName).o > $(ProgramName).ass

$(ProgramName)-upload:  $(ProgramName).hex
[TAB]   avrdude ${AVRDUDEFLAGS} -U flash:w:$(ProgramName).hex:a

So the indentation has be done with TABs not spaces. Some editors will substitute tabs for spaces as like I said will copy paste will do!
