What benefits over Make does this give, in practical terms? In the page that they claim describes features in makepp not in make, they talk about automatic scanning for include files (which Make can do, if they mean files included in the make files), avoiding recursive make (which Make can do fairly easily), ways of avoiding timestamps (which isn't much of a feature as noted previously), and many other things that are either possible with Make, are misfeatures to me (arbitrary perl code in the Makefile) or do not obviously give any benefit.
