OK, but what about a makefile like this:

MYVAR = 1  # comment \
             same comment continues

According to info, GNU make treats the second line as a comment:

   * `#' in a line of a makefile starts a "comment".  It and the rest of
     the line are ignored, except that a trailing backslash not escaped
     by another backslash will continue the comment across multiple
     lines.

So it should be colored as a comment.
