You have to quote the argument so make treats the entire CPULIST as one

        make OS=nto CPULIST='x86 -B install' LDFLAGS=-M

This is really more of a shell syntax question than a make question:
whenever you want to pass an argument to a program that contains
whitespace or other characters special to the shell, you have to quote
them so the shell doesn't mess with them.
