That's true, but we can always work around this.  For example (watch
the make-cmd thing):

autoloads: $(lisp)/loaddefs.el $(LOADDEFS) doit
        @echo Directories: . $(WINS_UPDATES)
        $(emacs) -l autoload \
                --eval $(ARGQUOTE)(setq find-file-hook nil 
find-file-suppress-same-file-warnings t make-cmd=$(MAKE))$(ARGQUOTE) \
                -f w32-batch-update-autoloads "$(lisp)/loaddefs.el" . 

Then use `make-cmd' inside autoload.el instead of a literal "make".

I think this is undesirable, for something that needs to run at build
