canned sequences and echo

I read in the info pages from make that the '@' token
when used inside a canned sequence only affects the current
line. However, I have a Makefile with these lines:

define compile
@echo "compiling $(@F)"


%.o:    $(srcdir)/Sys/%.cc

and it appears the 'compile' command is never echoed *at all*.
If I remove the '@' from the first line of the 'compile' command,
the second line is echoed, which seems to contradict the docs.
Is this indeed a bug, or am I doing something wrong ?
