Nope.  In fact I meant exactly what I said.

Yes, the only comment color would be "#ppp", but makefile-mode also
colorizes make variable references.

In the above, the $e is interpreted by make and expanded to the value of
the make variable "e".  Since this value is interpreted by make, it
should be colorized as a make variable reference by makefile-mode.

If you'd written:

  e=z #ppp
        echo $$e
        f=g date

then I would agree with your statement.
