Problem with escaped parens

With the patched cygwin build of make I am having some trouble with escaped () in depend
lines in makefiles.

all: C:/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/CMake\ 2.4/share/cmake-2.4/Modules/TestBigEndian.c
   echo hello or something

I get this:

make: *** No rule to make target `C:/Program Files \(x86\)/CMake 2.4 /share/cmake-2.4/Modules/TestBigEndian.c', needed by
`all'.  Stop.

However the escaped \( stuff works for running programs and other references to files.

What is the correct behavior here? With the previous cygwin make, 3.8.0 it needed the \( to work.
