make doesn't honor -n switch plus wrong target selection

I was experimenting on the recursive invocation of make. I found something that's not expected and couldn't find out why that happens by reading the manual.

Please see the attached package.

Problem 1: Make is not recognizing the first available target "all" and is going behind another one. I have specified it as ".PHONY" have written "all" as the first target. But still make seems to skip it.

Problem 2: Apart from the first bug, even if I specify -n switch, make tries to *execute* the commands for the target.

There are a couple of variables set using the "shell" function. Interestingly, if I comment those out, make seems to work well!

Please check whether this is a bug or not.
