Update of bug #58529 (project make):

                  Status:                    None => Not A Bug              
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #3:

Why do you think that the origin of FOO should _not_ be "command line"?

It WAS overridden on the command line in the sub-make.  The value of
MAKEOVERRIDES specifies what values are to be passed on the command line to
the sub-make.

When you use "MAKEOVERRIDES += FOO=y" what you're saying is that whenever
"$(MAKE)" appears in a recipe it will be replaced with the equivalent of "make
$(MAKEOVERRIDES)" or in this case, "make FOO=y".

So, I would definitely expect that the origin of FOO in the submake would be
"command line".

I'm marking this closed but feel free to add more comments if you have other
questions or don't agree with this assessment.
