Follow-up Comment #8, bug #58364 (project make):

I agree that it is unfortunate and these things can happen.

The "breaking change" was due to the extra number of output lines (and for
CMake) with a different syntax and might break automatic scripts.

I also think that CMake is widely used but the remark "I've not received any
reports from anyone about this as an issue except for CMake users so reliance
on this behavior apparently wasn't too wide-spread" I don't support, only
users that keep up to date will notice the problem. I noticed the problem
after 3 month when I updated Cygwin and unfortunately only make is updated and
CMake isn't yet (I did build it myself and the problem is gone).
A lot of users won't notice it whilst they don't update their OS / their OS
does not provide the latest updates. I think the major number of people seeing
the problem will come in a couple of years.
