  Modified files:
    usr.bin/make/tests/variables/t2 expected.stdout test.sh
  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 :-)
