Follow-up Comment #1:

This isn't a bug, IMO.  The call function is not evaluating its argument as if
it were makefile syntax.  It's simply expanding the contents of the variable
just as referencing it with $(def) would, and variable values are not parsed
for comments (or other special characters, besides "$").

If you want to interpret the contents of the variable as if it were a makefile
snippet you should use the eval function instead; this:

define def
# $(error not an error anymore)

$(eval $(value def))


won't fail.
