Follow-up Comment #2, bug #46995 (project make):

Thanks for the extra info Brian.
So I understand that the problem actually is that foreach adds whitespace into
variable name.

$(foreach var , $(LIST), do something with $(var ))

while in contrast for example 'call' knows to strip whitespace from a var name
so this:

$(call var ,$(ARG))
will actually invoke $(var) and not $(var ).

Don't think I can change the bug topic.
Is that a known issue with an already open bug?
