It depends upon what you mean by nice ;-)

Using GNU make 3.80 and above, you can define a function that does the include 
for you and also sets a make variable to be the file being included.  This 
variable may then be used by the included file.

I want an included makefile to be able to identify itself (or atleast its directory). Take the following example:


The /prog/Makefile uses "include apples/" to call another makefile. I need the apples/ to know where it is. If I use $(shell pwd) I get the location of the root Makefile instead. I'm using Make 3.79.1 (and am stuck with it) so I can't use the MAKEFILE_LIST variable.

Is there a nice way of doing this?
