I decided to use a multiline assignment to make futher patches to the
content easier to read. If the variable is expanded it will appear as is
in the Makefile, resulting in syntax errors. Maybe a single echo would
work as well. 
Will check if this can be improved. But I fear there is not much that
can be done to achieve "\$thing".
