Subject: [bug #23468] end-of-line backslashes fails with perl (Cygwin, although I strongly believe it's general problem)

Follow-up Comment #1, bug #23468 (project make):

Look in the NEWS file:

* WARNING: Backward-incompatibility!
  In order to comply with POSIX, the way in which GNU make processes
  backslash-newline sequences in command strings has changed.  If your
  makefiles use backslash-newline sequences inside of single-quoted
  strings in command scripts you will be impacted by this change.  See
  the GNU make manual subsection "Splitting Command Lines" (node
  "Splitting Lines"), in section "Command Syntax", chapter "Writing the
  Commands in Rules", for details.

This is a feature, not a bug.
