Follow-up Comment #2, bug #46013 (project make):

I have a hard time seeing the relationship of Comment #1 with the bug report.

I am not suggesting that override should automatically be passed on to
submakes. It is precisely for this reason that I expect to be able to pass
them on by way of changes to MAKEFLAGS or MAKEOVERRIDES. As I read section
5.7.3 (Communicating Options to a Sub-make) of the manual, the point of
allowing changes to MAKEFLAGS is to pass these changes to submakes, and this
works if there is at least one override on the original command line.

The inconsistency alone should be sufficient to qualify it as a bug.

I completely agree that the fact that override by itself is not sufficient to
automatically pass variables to submakes is expected behaviour. Perhaps the
comment was intended to apply to some other bug report.
