Maybe.  Do you have either the $ENV or $BASH_ENV variables set?  If so
that probably explains the behavior.  See the bash man page for more

Also note that on some Linux systems /bin/sh (which is what make uses as
a shell unless you set SHELL, which you do sometimes in your examples
but not other times) is not really bash, but rather ash or some other
Bourne shell.

Also remember that even if /bin/sh is really bash, bash behaves
differently when invoked as sh, and unless you set SHELL make will
always use /bin/sh.
