So what would you do to set an environment var from within a makefile. I 
tried to start up another instance of command within a makefile but i can't 
execute any commands to it, actually i could set a variable on this shell 
only through the /K switch.
Please help me i really need to change an environment var from a makefile. 
I need to set DEPENDENCIES_OUTPUT for gcc. I especially need the second 
value (the name of the target in the created dependency), 'cause i didn't 
found any other solution (with the -MMD option i cant specify the targets 
name).

Greetings,
Martin
