Follow-up Comment #1:

I've fixed this.  It definitely was an issue with archive names; GNU make
specifies that a target matching name(member) is considered an archive.

In your example with empty parentheses it seemed like this could never be
legal so I made it a requirement in the code that "member" must not be the
empty string.

However, if you change your example to something like "bracket(x)" instead of
just "bracket()", it will still run afoul of this archive issue.

I'm not sure how to manage this; it seems a basic limitation in make.  If
someone runs into THAT bug we'll have to address it then.
