I don't know, but we could ask Paul D. Smith, the GNU Make maintainer.

One idea is to get rid of the prefix directory in the source file
names (CXTERM-DIC in this case), by putting those directories into
VPATH, and then use an implicit dependency ".tit.elc:" and leave it to
Make to find the *.tit files.  (Yes, I know that VPATH is also
unavailable in some flavors of Make, but I think it's more widespread
than the feature you used above.)

Even if no general solution is possible, we could use a GNU Make
specific one; that way, at least users of GNU Make will have a better
