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\
    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.

Did the same work (if you remove the drive letter) with the unpatched
Cygwin build of Make 3.81?

What if you quote the object of target all?  Like this:

all: "C:/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/CMake\2.4/share/cmake-2.4/Modules/TestBigEndian.c"

Please do watch the linewrap.
