This is a duplicate of bug #10593.  It turns out the problem is not completely trivial to fix: there are potential infinite recursion issues that need to be addressed.

$(warning $(shell echo "From $$(shell ...): $$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"))

  @echo "From $@: $$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"

The $(warning ) will print the original LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

As you might expect, variations on this theme are no different; all of the following have identical results:

export undefine LD_LIBRARY_PATH
