I guess you can try prepending # or ; or ' or ! which would
be the most common comment markers...

However, upon trying your "@file" solution I found it
doesn't work for me, so I'd advise again to go for a proper

# comment 1

#comment 2
INC += -I../../Include

OPTS = -mcpu=850 -gdwarf2


all: somefile.o

and that's about it, type "make" and voilà. Side effect,
when your project starts having more than one file, you'll
only have to recompile those files you actually changed.
(well, that's what make was for in the first place!).
