Follow-up Comment #2, bug #33399 (project make):

Actually, given right quoting, make handles whitespace in target names just
fine: example in original post works as expected if rules were single-colon.

The problem described is different: it's that make doesn't set double-colon
flag on rule when actual and literal target names have different lengths
(because of successfully escaped characters (not necessary whitespace (e.g.
target a:b  fails the same way))).

The attached patch fixes this problem, it is only one line long and it doesn't
break backward compatibility.
