It was my fault when I recopied the content of Makefile but it was in

=> Attempting to fetch 
http://waix.dl.sourceforge.net/project/tiled/files/tiled-qt/0.6.2/tiled-qt-0.6.2.tar.gz

=> Attempting to fetch 
http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/project/tiled/files/tiled-qt/0.6.2/tiled-qt-0.6.2.tar.gz
fetch:
