  My regression test had a bug in it.  Quoting a value in a Makefile
  causes make(1) to treat it as one word.
  APPLE = "AAA AAA AAA"        # one word
  ORANGE = AAA AAA AAA        # three words

I'm sorry? I never noticed that. Is that because of your changes or is 
it just an effect with sh's parsing?

I always thought that make would parse (well, at least treat as)
into <"POO>, <PAA>, <PEE">.
maybe i'm completely wrong here
Nope, it looks like that has been the behavior.  I tested this on
FreeBSD 4.10 system.  It is the behavior of make(1) parsing of
values assigned to variables.  I was just as surprised.
Hey I am glad other people are reading my commit messages :-)
