First, this is not a proper bug report.  Whenever you report a bug you
must always specify the version of the program you're using, the type of
system you're using it on, and the complete, _exact_ error message you
received (best is to cut and paste it into your report).  Plus, any
other information you think might be useful.

Second, there is nowhere in GNU make that the text "macro substitution"
(in any case) exists, much less is printed.

Finally, there is no "?:" macro operator in GNU make, so I don't know
what the above construct might be supposed to mean.
