Would it really help if I try to supply a patch that implements your idea?
Or is the current "state of affairs" sufficient that the general idea (i.e.
allowing to add target specific prerequisites without changing automatic
variables) will eventually go into some future version of GNU Make?
Well, being honest, there's not a great chance I'll find the time to
implement this on my own.  Not because I have a problem with idea, but
just because I don't have a lot of free time.  If it's something you
want your best bet is to implement it yourself.
Fair enough :-).
The more comprehensive the implementation (that is, docs, regression
tests, etc.) the more likely it is to be applied quickly.

I'll do my very best, but it may take some time. It will also most likely
require a couple of iterations and I may need to ask for some help, but
let's see ...

Let me know how you want to proceed.

As I want to tackle the most challenging part first, I'd like to suggest to
do the copyright assignment after the technical side is in a decent shape.
But as I said, no problem to do it fist if that's more appropriate.

Thanks for your interest in GNU make!
Thanks for considering the feature :-) and for maintaining GNU Make!
