Is the error message above verbatim, including the embedded space in the
pathname after "path" and before "/Makefile"?

That's ultra-bizarre.  Can you provide a reproducible case (cut down)?
You're really just replacing the $@ with a simple explicit path exactly
as you show above?  No quoting, make variables, etc.?

Can you also paste the recursive make command that make is invoking?
You might have to remove the "@" so it will be printed.  That should
definitely be illuminating.
