Description fray 2013-06-18 17:29:09 EDT
Description of problem:
A previous change, made as part of Bug #631552 was incomplete.  A valid dependency of the type:

target( dep1 dep2)

Fails, where:

target (dep1 dep2)


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
make 3.82 all versions

How reproducible:
Use the following makefile

test.a: test_a.c test_b.c test.a( test_a.c test_b.c)

        touch $@

        touch $@

(note those are tabs, not spaces on the 'touch' lines)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make -f makefile

Actual results:
touch test_a.c
touch test_b.c
make: *** No rule to make target `test.a()', needed by `test.a'.  Stop.

Expected results:
touch test_a.c
touch test_b.c
ar rv test.a test_a.c
ar: creating test.a
a - test_a.c
ar rv test.a test_b.c
a - test_b.c

Additional info:
Fix should be backported from latest GNU Make repository
