This would be a neat feature.

Anyone is always welcome to try to create and submit patches.

OTOH, I don't know how you'd go about creating this feature.  For example, make 
has little or no communication with the compiler or linker.  Even if it did, 
these tools typically don't advertise how much more work they have -- I'm not 
even sure if it's
possible for them to know how much more work they have.  And compiles and links 
are the simple cases.

What about targets whose actions are completely custom?
