You are using a version of GNU make that doesn't support that function.
It was added in GNU make 4.4.

You can check the NEWS file:

And in particular here:

The version of the GNU make manual provided on the GNU website always
documents the latest release.  If you want to see the documentation for
the version of GNU make installed on your system, then you should read
the documentation packaged for your system which will presumably be the
correct vesion.
