As you proceed with your non-recursive build, be sure to keep in mind that you are leaving the common path so you can expect to encounter more bugs or things that need to be worked around. There are also asthetic differences such as that your object files may be given funny names. I think it is worthwhile in the long term though.

There is something very satisfying to do 'make' on a large project and see:

% time gmake
gmake  all-am
gmake[1]: Entering directory `/scratch/bfriesen/build/GraphicsMagick-16-static'
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/scratch/bfriesen/build/GraphicsMagick-16-static'
gmake  0.78s user 0.10s system 88% cpu 0.990 total

Note that the messages appear to indicate that Automake does recurse once regardless.
