Seems to work here.

    [EMAIL PROTECTED]:18]/tmp/lala$ cat Makefile
    DIRS=   alpha beta

    .PHONY: $(DIRS)

    all:    $(DIRS)

    clean:
            rmdir $(DIRS)

    alpha beta:
            mkdir $@
    [EMAIL PROTECTED]:18]/tmp/lala$ make
    mkdir alpha
    mkdir beta
    [EMAIL PROTECTED]:18]/tmp/lala$ ls -l
    total 6
    -rw-rw-r--  1 giorgos  wheel  -  94 May 27 21:18 Makefile
    drwxrwxr-x  2 giorgos  wheel  - 512 May 27 21:18 alpha
    drwxrwxr-x  2 giorgos  wheel  - 512 May 27 21:18 beta

Can you post the entire Makefile?
