i'm trying to do a recursive make, but the variables i export are not being seen by the sub makes.

SUBDIRS = blah...

        @if [ $(ARCH) = LINUX ]; then \
                export MYVAR = DEBUG; \
        cd $@ && $(MAKE)

when the sub make runs, MYVAR is not defined.  what am i doing wrong?

You need to rewrite it so that export is within same shell command
as $(MAKE). Then it will work:

        @if [ $(ARCH) = LINUX ]; then \
                export MYVAR=DEBUG; \
        fi; \
        cd $@ && $(MAKE)
