I don't think make will run csh unless SHELL is set explictitly in the
Makefile, so we can probably rely on some sort of Bourne or POSIX
sh. So as you suggest

        var=val command

or maybe even

        (var = val; export var; command)

I don't know which is the most portable, just as I don't know if
target-specific variables are portable :-(
