Thanks for your feedback.

I would like to clarify dependencies for other build system details a bit more.

I am more interested in consequences around recursive make scripts.

It seems to be simple to ensure access to an included file from a well-known 
in the directory hierarchy.
But how do you think about the usual case that the build configuration contains
also a bit of input data where relative paths are provided.
How would you try to construct the desired referential integrity for involved
subdirectories then?
