Follow-up Comment #1:

If you want POSIX behavior you have to define the .POSIX: special target; this
makefile works as you expect with GNU make:

all: ; echo "$X"


hallo   end

Note there's a bug #35711 which will bite you if you try to put the variable
assignment directly after .POSIX:.  I have a fix for that which will be in the
next release of GNU make.
