Follow-up Comment #1, bug #49841 (project make):

> It appears that the scope of the parameters in the outer function intrudes

The origin() function is also affected.

When inner function takes less arguments than the outer one, make hides
"extra" arguments of outer scope by defining them with empty values in the
scope of inner function.

Moreover, these "hidden" arguments are automatic, so can't be redefined, for
example by $(eval 2:=aaa)

This looks like inconsistency - behavior of inner function depends on the
number of arguments of outer one.

May be better solution will be - instead of defining fake arguments in context
of inner function, just forbid looking up arguments in outer scope?

The patch (against git repository) is attached.
