Using canned sequences

Basically, I am finding that turning echo off in a canned command sequence
as follows appears to prevent the echoing of the remainder of the commands
in the sequence

For example:

        define COPY_DEP_TO_TARGET
                echo **
                echo ** Copying $< to $@
                echo **

will echo each command as well as the output, however

        define COPY_DEP_TO_TARGET
                @echo **
                echo ** Copying $< to $@
                echo **

will prevent the echo of every command following the @ symbol.

It looks like the canned sequence is treated as a single command rather than
a set of commands by the processor. This happens for nested canned sequences
as well. This doesn't match the behaviour as described on section 5.7 of the
manual (v3.79)
