Follow-up Comment #1, bug #46585 (project make):

This may not actually be a bug:



Except by explicit request, make exports a variable only if it is either
*defined in the environment initially* or *set on the command line*, and if
its name consists only of letters, numbers, and underscores. Some shells
cannot cope with environment variable names consisting of characters other
than letters, numbers, and underscores. (emphasis mine)

This seems surprising to me, but that's what the docs say.
