I think you're greatly oversimplifying this.  Make doesn't know whether
the contents of a variable are file names, arguments, input to some
command, or anything else.  Just assuming that everything inside quotes
should be treated as a single word during make operations that work on
words (like all the make functions, etc.) would be a _gigantic_
