I downloaded the official document of GNU Make from http://www.gnu.org/software/make/manual/make.pdf
And I found that in the second paragraph under the title
"8.4 Functions for Conditionals"
of Page 89 (the 101st page of the pdf),
there is a round bracket which has no match.

Raw text:
The if function provides support for conditional expansion in a functional context (as opposed to the GNU make makefile conditionals such as ifeq (see Section 7.2 [Syntax of Conditionals], page 78).

Two open round brackets are used without closing one. And I've looked nearby text but only to find no close round bracket matching for this one.
