Should this really be changed? I find myself doing
make sim options=optionsfile SILENT=NO
occasionally when the make process fails for some odd reason (actually I 
would sometimes prefer if I could do more with this mechanism, eg. also 
OPTIMISE=NO when debugging). So if the possibility of doing 
VARIABLE=OVERRIDE on the command line is related to preferring 
environment variables over options file options then (at least for me) 
the current behaviour is the more useful one.
