pymake treats environment variables as := assignments
Consider the following Makefile: FOO += $(BAR) BAR := bar foo: @echo $(FOO) FOO=foo make -f test.mk outputs "foo bar" (while make -f test.mk FOO=foo output "foo") pymake outputs "foo". The real life case is that we export DLLFLAGS in security/build/Makefile.in, and security/coreconf/WIN32.mk appends -OUT="$@" to it. So the value ends up being whatever was exported + -OUT="", which fails to build.
