It’s counter-intuitive, but it is usually *MUCH* faster & more accurate to have a single make process
figure things out in most cases than to use recursive makes.
For more info, see “Recursive make considered harmful” by Peter Miller:
In October 2001 I applied the logic of that paper to a 1/2 million line work project to cut its build time by a factor of 20 and make it reliably build the Right Stuff. Took less than a month to win back the entire time I had spent reading the paper and working out the details of the new Makefile setup.
