Follow-up Comment #3, bug #36800 (project make):

Previously make didn't throw an error on the syntax.  But the rule always had
the problem that the file you created was not the same as the one you told
make you'd create.

Most likely you never noticed this because with a prerequisite like "all"
(which is probably .PHONY) the rule always rebuilt anyway.  But if you had
your makefile set up so that it would only rebuild the tarball if some part of
the build actually changed, then you would see that in fact make would
recreate this tarball always, even if nothing else changed.
