For maximum compatibility, that needs to be:
VAR=<value>; export VAR

Compatibility with what?

UNIX. The Single Unix Specification is maintained by the Open Group who
certify UNIX products.

You should upgrade your specification. Susv3 explicitly mentions the
"export name=word" syntax as supported.

In particular, Mac OS X is certified UNIX.

And installs bash as /bin/sh.
