Target-specific variables are not supported in GNU make 3.74.  Get a
newer version.  The latest is 3.79.1.

  an> variable:=STRING="A target-specific variable has been set"

This is not the right syntax for target-specific variables in GNU make.
The ":=" operator means something entirely different in GNU make.

You should use this:

  variable : STRING = a target-specific variable has been set
