|Summary||0001695: Description of MAKEFLAGS has confusing cross reference to word splitting|
The description of the MAKEFLAGS environment variable says:
> similar to a portion of the make utility command line
> as described in XBD Section 12.2
> shall not be subjected to the word expansions
> (see Section 2.6, ...)
These references are fairly broad, as XBD Section 12.2 describes all utility syntax guideliines, of which only a few are relevant to this cross reference.
As field splitting is one of the word expansions from Section 2.6, the 'shall not' would imply that no field splitting shall occur.
Instead of having these cross references, it seems to be simpler to just specify that the fields shall be split using the default IFS, followed by quote removal.
Re-check whether the cross references are helpful.
If they aren't, replace the cross references with more specific and accurate text.

|This is about the same text as bug 0001653 was. Perhaps the resolution of 1653 is sufficient to solve this one too?|
|Yes, it's a duplicate.|
