Update of bug #23468 (project make):

                  Status:                    None => Not A Bug              
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #2:

As Anonymous points out, this is a change that was required for POSIX

Note you can overcome this by putting your long perl script in a make
variable; instead of:

            perl -e 'my multi-
                line perl script'

you can use something like:

    PERL_SCRIPT = my multi-
                     line perl script
            perl -e '$(PERL_SCRIPT)'

The latter will work the same in all versions of make, and is arguably easier
to read and understand as well.
