Follow-up Comment #9, bug #27714 (project make):

No, that's not equivalent.  First, your GNU make syntax is wrong; you mean
"FOO = $(shell echo bar)".  And second, as far as I can see from the pmake
documentation "FOO != echo bar" is actually equivalent to "FOO := $(shell echo
bar)", so it doesn't apply to the issue discussed in this bug (which is that
the expansion of the shell happens when the recipe is evaluated, not when the
makefile is read in).
