So the problem is _PATH_CMD in
which is apparently used rarely - according to the comment.

And your failing makefile uses it with :=
so will have been broken since

Preserve $$ in := assignments..


        echo ${FOO}

I added the .MAKE.SAVE_DOLLARS knob to be able to retain the previous
behavior which many makefiles depend on - especialy some really
important ones (to me and $work) like my

Add a knob .MAKE.SAVE_DOLLARS to control the behavior of $$ during :=

If TRUE '$$' are not consumed (saved).
If FALSE '$$' becomes '$' just like normal expansion rules.

default is TRUE.

Here's a little test makefile to demo:

ECHO= echo
PREPEND_PATH= ${HOME}/some/where

# This is very Special.  Because PREPEND_PATH is set with += in reverse order,
# this command reverses the order again (since bootstrap bmake doesn't
# yet support the :[-1..1] construct).
	path=${_PATH_ORIG:Q};						\
	for i in ${PREPEND_PATH}; do path="$$i:$$path"; done;		\
	${ECHO} "$$path"
PATH=	${_PATH_CMD:sh} # DOES NOT use :=, to defer evaluation

# FAIL will work or not depending on .MAKE.SAVE_DOLLARS
# default true - it fails, if false (traditional behavor) it works

	@echo OK=${OK}
	@echo FAIL=${FAIL}


$ PATH=/bin:/usr/bin make -r -f that
$ PATH=/bin:/usr/bin make -r -f that .MAKE.SAVE_DOLLARS=no

Options are to

a/ avoid :=
