I'm on NixOS, pkgs installed:

    pkgsCross.avr.avrlibc
    pkgsCross.avr.buildPackages.binutils
    pkgsCross.avr.buildPackages.gcc

    avrdude
    avr8burnomat

    simavr
    avra

Here is how my fork of your Makefile currently looks like:

LIBC       := $(shell nix-build --no-out-link "<nixpkgs>" -A pkgsCross.avr.avrlibc)
ARGS       := -I $(LIBC)/avr/include -L$(LIBC)/avr/lib/avr4 

DEVICE     = m8
MCU        = atmega8
CLOCK      = 8000000
PROGRAMMER = avrisp2
PORT	   = usb:000200012345
BAUD       = 19200
FILENAME   = main
COMPILE    = avr-gcc -Wall -Os -DF_CPU=$(CLOCK) -mmcu=$(MCU) $(ARGS)

all: clean build upload
	
build:
	echo $(LIBC)
	$(COMPILE) -c $(FILENAME).c -o $(FILENAME).o
	$(COMPILE) -o $(FILENAME).elf $(FILENAME).o
	avr-objcopy -j .text -j .data -O ihex $(FILENAME).elf $(FILENAME).hex
	avr-size $(FILENAME).elf

upload:
	sudo avrdude -v -p $(DEVICE) -c $(PROGRAMMER) -P $(PORT) -b $(BAUD) -U flash:w:$(FILENAME).hex:i 

clean:
	rm -f main.o
	rm -f main.elf
	rm -f main.hex

.PHONY: all clean build upload

@edwardhotchkiss - thank you! This is really simple and it works, unlike every other avr-gcc makefile on the web.

@vyorkin - your avr-size appears to be just regular GNU size, as I get a similar error on Ubuntu if I

size --format=avr --mcu=atmega8a main.elf

instead of

avr-size --format=avr --mcu=atmega8a main.elf

avr-size --version returns GNU size (GNU Binutils) 2.26.20160125 for me, though, and the avr-size binary is huge compared to the regular one.
