Without that message, the user sees this:

D:\tmp>make foobar
make -C subdir
make[1]: Entering directory `D:/tmp/subdir'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `D:/tmp/subdir'

which is not a good thing, because they think, we attempted to go into 
subdirectory, great, but, nothing was attempted in the current directory...
