I'm not certain when this ability was broken as I haven't been coding too recently... I'm currently just moving between .c/.h files and a makefile at the moment.

I wonder if you accidentally told TextMate to treat these as binary (or if it's doing it for some other reason). Right-click one in the project drawer and see if one of your choices is ‘Treat files named “Makefile” as Text’. If it is, click it.
