If those are two successive lines of commands for a target in a
Makefile, then it won't work like that. Every line is executed as a
separate process, and any environment variables you set in the first
line will disappear before the second line is executed. You need to
combine them into a single shell command line for it to work. Or you can
use make variable. Alternatively, the problem may be that you set the
variable "package", but refer to "packagename". As a third option, it
might be that you set the variable as a make variable (the spaces around
the equals sign indicate that), but refer to it as an environment
variable (the double dollar sign); the correct way to refer to a make
variable is $(package).
