You missed the MAKEFILES portion of my email.

I haven't tried it, but I'm thinking of something like:

  ifeq ($(MAKELEVEL),0)
    # re-exec make with new MAKEFLAGS

then set

Hi Noel,
It's also just occurred to me that, using MAKEFILES and the "gmake self wrapper" trick, you could get what you want without having to patch make. OTOH, it is a bit more complicated even though the complication is hidden.

How is it hidden? In every makefile you have two write something like

if <MAKEFLAGS need adjustment>
include make-re-executor.make


# your code here


This is ugly. If I needed this feature in a project that otherwise
uses vanilla make I would think twice before patching make. But in
my case Rubicon is already crossed.
