Update of bug #33344 (project make):

                  Status:                    None => Not A Bug              
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #1:

Regarding the leading whitespace: all versions of make behave this way and the
POSIX standard requires it.  The manual is exactly correct: leading whitespace
immediately after the "=" is ignored... but that's handled at parse time
BEFORE any expansion of variables is done.

Regarding the issue with make 3.82 failing, I believe that's an instance of
bug #30612
