I would like to point out that my previous gripe about the unnecessary
translation of Automake target names (particularly when the target
includes a path), and the subsequent proposal to add user-level target
synonyms, dovetails nicely with the need to reduce the Makefile size.
The synonyms can help eliminate the size increase caused by the
directory path itself.  For typical subdirectory path lengths, this
could result in a 40% Makefile size reduction.
