     Which version of the make rule gave you "@true -- command not found"?

     If it's the git version, with "echo ; @true" as a make recipe line,
I think the problem is that when the command was moved from the end
of the prerequisites list to its own line, and the "echo" command was
inserted, the "echo" command was inserted wrongly.  The at-sign is a
make feature, and belongs at the beginning of the make recipe line:

          a: b ; @true
to
          a: b
              @true
to
          a: b
              @echo something ; true
or
          a: b
              @echo something
              @true
