I think I have detected a bug. The minimum Makefile needed to reproduce
it is attached along with the core dump and my config.h. I am running make
version 3.79.1, on a Sun Ultra 60 running SunOS Release 5.8 (Solaris). Here
are the commands to reproduce the core dump.
I did not see anything specific in the documentation saying not to append
to variables set in the environment BUT may have missed it in the documentation.
Sorry if I did....
