Well, the parentheses are not recognized as a special syntax in that context by 
GNU make, so they are passed to the shell, and the reason why they would be 
needed, is if the shell needed them to not echo ">>" - and Windows shell 
documentation says, they are not needed.  Tell me if you remember some other 
reason... Thank you.  

By the way, I want to say, I appreciate everybody's help here.  My intention 
was, just to check if I don't understand something about how "make" works.  It 
appears that is not the case, unfortunately :)  that would be an easy fix.  
Then, it's my job to find some fix and I will do it, I don't mean to ask you to 
do my job :)
