That's a general defect of recursive make setups.  How does .WAIT fix that?

I try to advocate good Makefile writing, but I also try to avoid recursive
Makefiles, and having a feature such as this .WAIT implementation would be
quite handy.

To quote a coworker of mine: what problem are you trying to solve?

I have yet to see a problem here where .WAIT is obviously the right
solution.  It seems like a poor solution to the "no concurrency"
problem and unnecessary for the recursive make problems.
