Also, your (still unlocalized :/) error message isn’t clear and, at the
first time, bugged me wondering if the error really was because I did
put a space inside the variable name: “spc-var.mk:3: *** missing
separator. Stop.”; wouldn’t “space is not allowed in variable names” or
more generally “variable name forbidden token”?
What separator is it talking about exactely? The space character? the
equal sign? something else I’m not thinking to?
