Follow-up Comment #4, bug #60799 (project make):
But my point is that $$ is NOT (intended to be) special to make. That's why
make doesn't do parentheses matching which it sees it.
In other words, to make this:
is treated the same way as this:
for any character "D". It's not special to make at all and so we don't do
anything special with the parens either.
I don't think it's inconsistent because that's what escaping a character
means: none of its special features are in force. Personally I think it would
be inconsistent to treat an escaped "$" differently than any other character.
