       Component Version: 3.82
        Operating System: POSIX-Based

The documentation for GNU make version 3.82 states:

     foolib(hack.o kludge.o)

is equivalent to:

     foolib(hack.o) foolib(kludge.o)

That was true for earlier versions, but not for 3.82,
which doesn't seem to parse the first version properly.
Demonstrating this requires no files, just a bit of a
shell session which is included below.  Thanks, CHRiS
