gnu make seems to be dropping part of an LDADD variable ?

My link line appears to pull in $(llines_LDADD),
but with a couple of tokens dropped from it,
which I don't understand. I'm no make expert, and
I'm certainly open to suggestions :)


My explanations are prefixed with greater than symbol (>).

Anyway, any suggestions welcomed :)



ps: I checked the LDADD multiline target, and the backslash characters
are the last characters
on each line (and if they weren't, then the -lintl should have been
