Absense of recursive macros in make makes the problem not that clear.
An alternative may be if to put \n into variable value,
so the make commands will be automatically generated
---- like this
remove_duplicates = $(2) := ; $(foreach tmpvar1,$(1),$(2) += $$(if
$$(findstring $(tmpvar1),$$($(2))),,$(tmpvar1)); )
$(call remove_duplicates, x y a a c c a b c,ABCD)
--- in this example the variable ABCD is set to the string without
duplicates
but make seems does not allow \n as a value and does not understand
several assignments in one line, so
A = B ; C = D
does not work as expected.

So the best what we can get without using shell is below (the code and
usage example)
The function $(call remove_duplicates,string with duplicates)
removes the duplicates from the string.

# joins four strings
join4 = $(join $(join $(1),$(2)),$(join $(3),$(4)))
# generates indexes
numbers = $(foreach x4,0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9,\
$(strip $(foreach x3,0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9,\
$(strip $(foreach x2,0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9,\
$(strip $(foreach x1,0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9,\
$(strip $(if $(findstring $(call join4,$(x4),$(x3),$(x2),$(x1)),0000),,\
$(if $(word $(call join4,$(x4),$(x3),$(x2),$(x1)),$(1)),\
$(call join4,$(x4),$(x3),$(x2),$(x1)))))))))))))
# generates indexes
numbers1 = $(wordlist 1,$(words $(wordlist 2,$(words $(1)),$(1))),\
$(call numbers,$(1)))
# Remove duplicates from a line of up to 10000 words
remove_duplicates = $(strip $(firstword $(1)) \
$(foreach tmpvar,$(call numbers1,$(1)),\
$(if $(findstring \
$(word $(tmpvar),$(wordlist 2,$(words $(1)),$(1))),\
$(wordlist 1,$(tmpvar),$(1))),,\
$(word $(tmpvar),$(wordlist 2,$(words $(1)),$(1))))))

f := x x y a b c d x e y jj jj j2 j2 j2 j7
all:
echo '$(call remove_duplicates,$(f))'
