I'm running 3.81beta4 and 3.80 on Kubuntu 6.06 Linux x86 and see this
parenthesis problem with the attached test Makefile too.

$ make -f Makefile_parenthesis_test
make: *** No rule to make target `Program Files/\(x86\)/test.c', needed
by `all'. Stop.

Therefore, is this issue actually present on *all* the GNU Make builds?

If I remove the (x86) part of the filename in the attached
Makefile_parenthesis_test it works fine (I copied test.c to the parent

all: Program\ Files/test.c

Earnie, adding quotes as "Program Files/\(x86\)/test.c" leaves still the
same error on Linux.


all: Program\ Files/\(x86\)/test.c
        echo hello

%.o: %.c
        cc -c $< -o $@
