MAKEOVERRIDES is what I need. First I thought I would have to parse
MAKEFLAGS but I realized MAKEOVERRIDES was what I needed. So passing
command line variables to a sub-make (not sure it's really a sub-make per
say) is done like this in my application:

bsub "make $(MAKEOVERRIDES)"

bsub is a command that picks the least loaded machine on my network.

Using $(MAKE) has the unpleasant effect of calling make even when -n is
