make aborts

hi there,

here is a little Makefile that makes make version 3.79.1 abort:


        @echo "foobar is $(foobar)"

a: foobar+="foobar"

it runs fine when I call 'make', but with 'make foobar="bla"'
it aborts (with a meaningful error message).

By the way, I sent in a bug report almost a year ago about errors
when resolving target patterns in specific cases, but never got
any feedback. Is make actually maintained these days ? Should I
send the bugreport again ?

Thanks a lot,
