Probably not.  That would basically be a fork; nobody else would be
able to recreate your Makefiles.

There isn't currently a built-in way to add a rule to all the
Makefiles in a tree.

One way you can do it by hand is to put common code into a file that
is then `include'd from each

Having a way to do this automatically might be useful.  It would need
some design of course.  Maybe something that worked like the existing
-recursive rules would be the way to go.  I'm not sure where or how
you would specify it.
