That's not entirely true, at least not for (admittedly rather ancient) GNU Make 
V3.81.
E.g., consider this Makefile:

var := $(shell echo "echo hi" >say_hi.sh; chmod +x say_hi.sh; say_hi.sh)
all: ; @echo $(var)

Calling make with the PATH environment variable either way yiedls:

$ make PATH=$PATH:.
/bin/sh: 1: say_hi.sh: not found

$ PATH=$PATH:. make
hi

I'm not sure though if this is intended behavior or just a bug and if a more 
recent version of GNU Make does the same. But considering that GNU Make V3.81 
is the standard in e.g. Ubuntu LTS 14.04, it may still matter.

Cheers,

Chris

There is no difference between the two. They both declare environment variables 
for make.

Subject: Exported vs command line variables

Hi,

I have noticed that there is a difference between the two scenarios
listed below:

i) make  CC=arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc CPPFLAGS=[..]

ii) export CPPFLAGS=[..] [RET]
    make CC=arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc


I have read over internet that the latter is used when appending
instead of replacing/setting the variable's value.

What is exactly the difference ? Is there a page in the Make manual
explaining that ?


Thanks a lot,
P.
