 I got it now.  My precedence interpretation was backwards.  I was
 going: env overrides global overrides command line overrides local.
 It is, of course, the opposite.
 +1 for the patch in standards/57295 (after ports fixes verified).
 I'll have to check our product builds with that patch to make sure
 they work.  Is that patch up to date or is there another one floating
 around in p4?  I think we have one or more hacks using the .MAKEFLAGS
 target which we'll be able to remove after make is patched.
 Thanks for the explanations, Ruslan.
