Update of bug #60538 (project make):

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


Follow-up Comment #5:

As Martin says, if the variable is set ON THE COMMAND LINE, it will absolutely
take precedence over the setting in a makefile variable (unless overridden
with override).

But, you said you has set this IN THE ENVIRONMENT which is very different;
values set in the environment should not take precedence over values set in
the makefile (as long as -e is not set).

So, you'll have to investigate why/how this variable assignment is appearing
in your command line (in MAKEFLAGS).

I'm going to close this; you can continue to post here but better would be to
discuss on the mailing list, until/unless we discover a bug.
