How to escape ${something} (not to expand it) in a Makefile ?

I'm out of ideas with this. Bellow I need to have ${LOCALBASE} expanded
to its value and the rest of $... to be passed verbatim.
Each combination of quoting and escaping I've tried the last 2 1/2 hours
dons't work. Could someone please point me to the right doc to read or
explain how does this work ?

RUN_DEPENDS+='--with-delivery-agent=${LOCALBASE}/cyrus/bin/deliver -e -r ${sender} -m ${extension} ${user} $u'
