After I bit more thought I figured this might be related to the MAKEFLAGS changes, so I added $(info MAKEFLAGS=$(MAKEFLAGS)) to the makefile. It seems that MAKEFLAGS is accumulating --eval options, and on the fifth restart it has this value:

MAKEFLAGS=--eval=$$(info\\ --eval) --eval=$$(info\\ --eval) --eval=$$(info\\ --eval) --eval=$$(info\\ --eval) --eval=$$(info\\ --eval) --eval=$$(info\\ --eval)

Hi,

I'm using release candidate version 3.99.90 and I'm seeing problems relating to the --eval command line option.

The attached makefile is designed to cause restarts until MAKE_RESTARTS equals 5. In order to see how many times the --eval option is being applied, I build the makefile with the following command:

    make --eval='$(info --eval)'

The output I get is as follows:

--eval
MAKE_RESTARTS=
--eval
--eval
MAKE_RESTARTS=1
--eval
--eval
--eval
MAKE_RESTARTS=2
--eval
--eval
--eval
--eval
MAKE_RESTARTS=3
--eval
--eval
--eval
--eval
--eval
MAKE_RESTARTS=4
--eval
--eval
--eval
--eval
--eval
--eval
MAKE_RESTARTS=5
make: Nothing to be done for 'all'.

It seems that the --eval option is being applied (MAKE_RESTARTS + 1) times at the start of each restart and this can result in some very strange effects.

This is different to the behaviour I see with 3.82 where --eval only appears once for each restart.

best regards,
Rob.
