I agree, this is a bug.

If a global variable is added to as a target specific variable, then using $(value ...) in a recipe gets the wrong value.

Given the attached makefile, when built with GNU Make 3.82 I get the following output:

$(value DEFS) = FOO

but I was expecting to get:

$(value DEFS) = BAR FOO

Maybe I misunderstand the $(value) function, but as DEFS does not contain reference to any other variable I was expecting the content of DEFS to be the same as the expanded value of DEFS.
