Just curious: why does this prevent doing any more testing?

That issue needs to be carefully considered.  In the previous release,
B would not be exported to the $(shell ...) function and so this issue
doesn't come up.  In the new release, it is and it does.

I think there's a better way to handle this than the one you suggest
but I will need to look more closely at it.  I agree that limiting the
check to target_environment() was too optimistic on my part.
