[bug #43757] Target-specific assigments influencing whether target considered intermediate.

Update of bug #43757 (project make):
Item Group: Bug => Enhancement
Follow-up Comment #1:
The problem is this; the GNU make manual says: "a file cannot be intermediate
if it is mentioned in the makefile as a target or prerequisite". That
includes a being mentioned as a target in a target-specific variable
By mentioning the target, you have disabled intermediate file status for that
target. That's why using a pattern-specific variable assignment doesn't
"disable" intermediate-ness: that's not explicitly mentioning a target.
It's quite possible this is not ideal, and GNU make should not treat targets
in target-specific variable assignments as "mentioned" in the context of
intermediate files. I'll leave this bug open as an enhancement request.
