My stupid compiler error

I'm trying to make a Game engine and it works except for this

Circular Main <- Main.o dependency dropped.

What does that mean?

heres my main file.

1#include "GameEngine.h"
3int main()
5 GameEngine* GameEngine1;
6 GameEngine1.LockTimers();
7 GameEngine1.SpetSpeed();
8 install_int_ex(GameEngine1.SpeedTime,BPS_TO_TIMER(60));
9 BITMAP*buffer;
10 GameEngine1.SetUp(32,buffer);
11 while(!key[KEY_ESC])
12 {
13 draw_screen(buffer);
14 rest(100);
15 }
16 return 0;

Life could be better, machines could program themselves.

It means your Makefile is broken. You appear to be trying to compile Main as the source file, where you should be compiling Main.cpp.
