Follow-up Comment #3:

I modified the .POSIX pseudo target behavior so that if it's set, then we get
POSIX-style backslash/newline handling.  The default, though, remains the GNU
make method.

If you want to portably get the POSIX behavior without specifying .POSIX, you
can do this:

# empty variable
E =
FOO = a      $E

That is, add empty variable references so that the parser doesn't think that
the backslash/newlines are really consecutive, and that the whitespace is not
