in GnuMake I am trying to load a variable with a string that contains a
#-character, like:

        MEXOPTION := abc#def

The # is interpreted as start of a comment, and the variable only holds
I tried the escape character "\\" like:

       MEXOPTION := abc\\#def

but it doesn't work. Can somebody please help me?
