Really?  I don't think so.  As I understand from reading gnu make info, it 
will use /bin/sh.

"The program used as the shell is taken from the variable `SHELL'.
By default, the program `/bin/sh' is used."

It will not use $(SHELL) from the environment, apparantly, because my 
SHELL=/bin/bash, and that didn't work.  Setting explicitly make 
SHELL=/bin/bash did work.
