Simpler form of the test case:

SITES.${fetchfile:S/=/--/}= http://host/
        echo ${}
        echo ${SITES.}

and it's definitely a make bug. It's tripping on the = in the
substitution and assigning
        /--/}= http://host/
which becomes just "SITES."

The simpler form (without the for loop) breaks on older versions of
make too. :-|
