Proposal patch

Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.4.5) 
OS:                Linux

The syntax highlighting rules for Makefiles do not recognize properly the "+=" defining operator, which should entail the same behaviour as the "=" operator.

I attach a proposal of a patch, but I'm not sure that it was the proper correction, even if it seems to work for me.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
In a Makefile, write the definitions

CFLAGS  = -Wall

Actual Results:  
The two lines are highlighted in completely different ways.

Expected Results:  
The two lines should be highlighted alike.

OS: Linux (i586) release 2.6.32-trunk-686
Compiler: cc
