How can I change the search path for a makefileB inside makefileA ?

Inside makefileA I have a

include makefileB

I want to have make search for makefileB first in the current directory (the 
one I call make inside), then in the directory above and finally another 
level higher.

How do I implement this? Background: at the top level I have a makefile with 
all settings. Next I want to derive my current makefile from the superclass 

Is this possible with GNU make?

If not: feature request: MAKEFILE_SEARCHPATH variable which can be defined 
inside a makefile!!!
