Yeah, I figured it wasn't going to be a straight-forward fix since the bug 
report was posted about two years ago.

Thanks for giving more info.

Is there any way to suppress the "No such file or directory" error generated by "include" unless it's possible to create the included makefile?

I was thinking about fixing this some time ago but apparently to do
it right is going to be messy. As we know make gives an error message with a file name and a line number if makefile is missing and later, if it cannot be built, make just says "unable to build...". Now if we are to postpone the first message until rebuild time then we'll need to store this file:line information somewhere. And that's where things get messy.

I'd rather not use -include because it ignores errors altogether.

My "meantime solution" is to change include to -include once things
get stable.
