Re: Are pattern variables additive?

In GNU make 3.80, only the first pattern-specific variable definition
that matches a given target is used.

In future releases all pattern-specific variable definitions that match
are used, in the order in which they were defined.  This change has
already been made in the source.  With the latest version of GNU make
from CVS your example gives:

  $ ./make
  hello a a+b c
