Follow-up Comment #1:

This was a little odd.  The problem is that if -e is given, due to a weird set
of coincidences, the MAKEFLAGS variable is not expanded before it's passed to
jobs via the environment.  If -e is *not* given, then MAKEFLAGS *is*

This was difficult to see in practice since, although command line overrides
were not not present in MAKEFLAGS as expected, they were in the environment
and since -e was given those took precedence over the makefile settings.  But,
it was possible to tell via the origin function as Masahiro discovered.

I've pushed a fix for this.
