Is this a 'make' bug?

I dunno, but somebody is choking on this line from /usr/ports/Mk/

PYTHONBASE!=   (${PYTHON_CMD} -c 'import sys; print sys.prefix') \
                              2> /dev/null || ${ECHO_CMD} ${LOCALBASE}

That first '(' should also be passed to the shell as part of the command, I'm
guessing, but it's being stripped off instead.

Anyone else seeing this error today?
