        This was reported by a debian user

 Please look at the following Makefile:

 address@hidden:~> cat -n bug.mak
      1  VAR = value;
      2  all:
      3          echo 1
      4          echo 2
      5          echo $(VAR}

 It contains a typo ('}' instead of ')' in line 5)
 Now running make on it:

 address@hidden:~> LANG=C make -f bug.mak
 bug.mak:3: *** unterminated variable reference.  Stop.

 You see, the line number reported in the first line of command block,
 not line number where the error is.

 I faced this when a typo was somewhere in a 100-line command block,
 that was full of variable references. It was not easy to find where
 the problem was.


It's fabulous!  We haven't seen anything like it in the last half an
hour! Macy's
