Re: bin/43821 (make: oldstanding bug with loop variables)

Synopsis: make: oldstanding bug with loop variables

Whether it's a bug is debatable (getting "malformed conditional" is a bug
but that's a minor aspect of the issue) but this is deeply ingrained
behavior of loop variables and it's not readily changed or "fixed". Try
this example on for size:

.for i in 1 2 3
.if !empty(j:M2)
res=passed ${j}

        @echo ${res}
