Macro defining macros...

Hello, I'm not subscribed to the list (can you carbon copy
my address when replying?) and couldn't find any reference 
in the manual... 
I'm trying to do something like:

  define(`macro1', `define(`macro2', `$0 -- $1 -- $2')')
  macro2(foo, bar)

When expansion takes place, however, I get:

 -- -- 

This means that expansion of macro1 succesfully defined
macro2, but macro2 is not getting $1, $2, correctly...
I would expect to have something like:

macro2 -- foo -- bar

Any suggestion on how to make the above work? What am
I doing wrong?

the following leads to ``strange'' results:

  define(`macro1', `define(`macro2', `$0 -- $1 -- $2')')
  macro1(foo, bar)
  macro2(but, kis)
  macro2(pit, pot)


  -- foo -- bar
  --  --

Thanks for any help,

The best book on programming for the layman is "Alice in Wonderland";
but that's because it's the best book on anything for the layman.
