I've been using a make function library that allows for math processing
within a makefile (GMSL,) however, we use these fuctions on every rule and
found that it slows the build chain by about 25%.

It would seem much more efficient to do the math processing native within
make with some function like $(math $(VAL)+($(FOO)/4))

These functions could be used in all areas of a build from formating text to
dynamic creation of linker scripts.
