This is where I decided to seek professional help ;)

If you have filenames with colons in them, you certainly do need professional help ;). Colons aren't legal in all filesystems, e.g. no Microsoft filesystems don't allow them. Semicolons also aren't allowed on all filesystems (again, i think MS doesn't allow them).

i've done quite a lot of:

1) Makefile calls script.
2) Script generates makefile code
3) Make imports and evals the makefile code

(mostly from back when i still supported pre-eval() Make versions.)

A lot of that can be found here:

the files are named "makerules.XXXXX"

Perhaps they'll be helpful to you?

But if you're using such weird character in filenames, i highly recommend re-evaluating the need to do so.
