Why should it be any of those? It's just runtest, not
$target-runtest. The line gets overridden anyway if you run make
check up a directory, I imagine that's why I never see it.
Anyway, gcc uses:
AR_FOR_TARGET := $(shell \
if [ -f $(objdir)/../binutils/ar ] ; then \
echo $(objdir)/../binutils/ar ; \
if [ "$(host)" = "$(target)" ] ; then \
echo $(AR); \
t='$(program_transform_name)'; echo ar | sed -e $$t ; \
So I would imagine that removing the '' is all it takes. Or maybe
those are wrong too, I don't think they get used much.
