{ cd /tmp && mkdir a && ln -sT a b && cd b && make -w; }

make: Entering directory `/tmp/a'

Why not /tmp/b?  Is there an option to prevent this resolution?
I understand that relative path names must be resolved; 
but could you leave directory aliases as they are please?

This hit me when I tried to make in a directory that had a colon in the name;

this caused targets containing $(CURDIR) to be split and resulted in an
I made a symbolic link to avoid the path with colon but it did not work;
make decided it would rather use the original path instead.

And, last but not least, this behaviour is undocumented 
(at least in the info file).
