I just do something like:

    MAKEDIRLIST += foo bar
    MAKEDIRLIST += biz
    MAKEDIRLIST += boz


    $(shell for d in $(MAKEDIRLIST); do ...etc)

Just put the $(shell ...) at the end and do them all at once.  You don't
have to do them in order: remember all makefiles are read first before
any rules are run.
