I'm trying to to stop make using its built in rules.
When I use make -R on the command line this works fine.
However when I use MAKEFLAGS = R in the makefile it doesn't work.
I use -d to see which rules are being checked.

You can't affect how make processes a makefile by setting MAKEFLAGS in
the makefile itself.  Currently, make sets all the built-in variables
and rules before parsing the makefile, and that can be tested by the
makefile itself, so changing it would create all sorts of problems.
