Follow-up Comment #3, bug #31326 (project make):

There's nothing make can do about this, that I can see.  If your variable
contains invalid syntax for a target then you won't see a problem until the
variable is used in a target context, and that's where the error will happen.

I suppose make could print the contents of the line, as well as the line
number, so you could see what the expanded line looked like to make when it
failed.  Or something like that.
