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

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.
