This was a bug in the new more efficient filename parser: it wasn't handling archive references correctly in that it was treating some files that were not archive references as archive references.


I've realized we have no regression tests whatsoever for archive references: I'll file a separate bug for that.

I create some small makefiles, one with () in the file name:

$ cat "foo.make"
include bar(x).make

$ cat "bar(x).make"
        @echo tada

make --version
GNU Make 3.81
../make/make --version
GNU Make 3.81.90

#If I run with CVS make I get errors:
$ ../make/make -f foo.make
foo.make:1: x).make): No such file or directory
make: * No rule to make target `x).make)'.  Stop.

#If I run with the release make, it works
$ make -f foo.make
