Follow-up Comment #5, bug #62595 (project make):

I'd never heard of these env file things, so appreciated the well-written
posts that those links point to.  Why would this feature be better in Make
rather than in a wrapper?  If you wanted, for some reason that I'm struggling
to guess, to keep "make" as the interface, then I think it'd be
straightforward to write a Makefile that would spot that an expected
environment variable wasn't available, then started a shell that sourced the
environment file, exported all its variables and reran make.
