Actually given the way its implemented, .MAKEOVERRIDES is probably best.
You are then closer to mimicking what would happen if you'd done

$ make TOP=/foo

when Var_Set is called for VAR_CMD variables, the variable name is
appended to .MAKEOVERRIDES and that's how it eventually ends up in the
child's $MAKEFLAGS.
