Why not? Manual says to do just this; and I
tested it just now to make
sure I am not imagining things, and it works fine. So what is unusual
in your setup?
I accidentally confused you - everything works fine if I pass
variables like you suggested. But I'd like to add possibility to
override variables using envronment variables.
This is exactly how various Linux distros' buildsystems are working.
So being able to setup variables system-wide would be helpful!
If you're trying to override DESTDIR then you'd already need something
that executes "make DESTDIR=/path/to/destdir" so if this works as Segher
suggests then can you not do "make DESTDIR=$DESTDIR" or similar?
