The rationale for this change is that it is annoying to have
to repeat the directory name when including a Makefile fragment.
For deep directory structures these repeats can generate a lot
of bloat.  It also hinders reuse and easy directory restructuring
if all Makefile fragments have to know exactly where they live.

I was not aware that it is my birthday today but it sure feels like it now after reading this email. Much thanks to Peter and Stefano for implementing this.

A substantial blocker for converting large packages to non-recursive builds will be eliminated. Considerable time and electricity will be saved.
