Re: [make-mode.el] Multi-line font locking not working correctly

    Of these five colons only the one before "x" is special. Without 
    highlighting the multiline string assigned to var "b:c" looks like a 
    rule, as does the last line. And prior to my rework, the colon in 
    ${var:a=b} was also recognized as a rule separator.

That is a bug, but the behavior of the code I removed was simply
intolerable--a much worse bug.

Here's the original message.

Suppose you want to type the following lines into a new Makefile:

FOO = bar \
        bar \

If you type everything by hand from top to bottom, as soon as <TAB> is
typed on the third line, fontification of the second line will
disappear.  Content typed in the third line will not be fontified
