 This happens because make only does a string comparison if the character
 after .if is '$' or '"' - but the substition of the loop control variable
 has already been done as part of the loop processing.
 cond.c rev 1.48 will also detect the == (or !=) following and do a
 comparison if present.
 The .for loop handling needs fixing though :-)
