Yeah, I was considering using $(eval) to get make to do what I wanted but first 
wanted to be sure there's no other way to get what I want.

I'd probably go with Boris's patch but it's unlikely our support will want to 
bring that in, useful as it is, unless GNU make is going to adopt it.

You can also do it with eval, without requiring a patch, if you can
somehow find a list of the subdirectories you want to handle.

For example, if you have a list of the target makefiles you want to

    MKFILES = foo/ bar/ baz/

then you can get a list of directories with $(dir ) etc., then you can
write a loop with eval to declare the proper implicit rules (or even use
explicit ones if you like).
