Perhaps you'd expect to see "BADGER is wombat" from:

mad@shuttle:~/tmp/wolf-2023-09-24$ cat Makefile
      $(eval BADGER = wombat)
ifeq ($(BADGER),wombat)
      echo BADGER is wombat
      echo BADGER is not wombat
mad@shuttle:~/tmp/wolf-2023-09-24$ make
echo BADGER is not wombat
BADGER is not wombat

If that wasn't what you were trying to convey, then perhaps you could concoct a similarly small example, including what you typed, what the computer said in response and what your expectation was.

If we look at the results of the first phase of Make described in:

mad@shuttle:~/tmp/wolf-2023-09-24$ make -p nothing 2>&1 | grep -B2 -A1 BADGER
#  File has not been updated.
#  recipe to execute (from 'Makefile', line 2):
      $(eval BADGER = wombat)
      echo BADGER is not wombat


... then we see that the "BADGER is wombat" arm of the conditional is not even there to be run when it comes to executing the recipe in the second phase.  The ifeq was "immediate" but the $(eval) was "deferred".

It's a separate matter, but I fear your second red line might be expecting this behavior:

mad@shuttle:~/tmp/wolf-2023-09-24$ echo *.a2l

... which I doubt you're going to get from find(1):

mad@shuttle:~/tmp/wolf-2023-09-24$ find -name "*.a2l"

I am having some trouble trying to set a variable inside a target. When reading the variable, it comes up blank. Below is my make file code. The eval statement below highlighted in red is not working. Can you provide some assistance please? I am using GNU Make 4.1
