This is exactly it, I think.  Also, make versions other than GNU make
don't do parallelism anyway.  And, you can see that automake recipes go
to a LOT of effort to handle the errors that are generated by
subdirectories properly: they even test the make flags and don't throw
an error if the user specified -k.

If you're able to rely on GNU make, it's a lot simpler to use one of the
methods described in the GNU make manual.
