Re: _ECHO=

The attached make file should echo the command "echo dummy compile" when
make is invoked as "make _ECHO=".  It does not.  As is noted by Mike Evans
below, if the @ on the first command in the defined macro is removed then
_ECHO= works properly.  I am using make-3.79.1.

(See attached file: makefile)

    I tried your file, and it does indeed fail.  However, if you remove the
@ from the first echo, then the macro-ized echo works as expected ... very
