Hi Sven,

Thanks for the advice, but my use case in not typical of this kind of
setup (I know and use Makefile in subdirectories for other projects).

In my case, the subdirectories are “dynamically” generated, because my
goal is to be able to generate N times some target, starting from a
template. The target list and dependencies is dynamically generated and
then included in the main Makefile, where I want to have the generic
recipe to be able to build things in subdirectories.

Hope this helps to clarify my goal. Maybe I should go the automake
route, I don't know, but I wanted to try vanilia make first.
