Understood. What I was trying to say was I read that as simply
MAKE being set to an empty string, whereas I thought you might have
been suggesting that it was getting a value of the rest of those

so presumably something is clearing $MAKE, but its not likely to
be bmake itself. gmake will set MAKE to MAKE_COMMAND but it should be
setting that to its argv too.

Which may suggest some misshandling of USE_GMAKE or a feature of gmake.
Sorry I can't be more helpful.
