No... and there cannot be.  GNU make simply invokes a shell and gives it
the command line you provided, then waits for the shell to exit.  The
shell sends its output to the terminal directly: GNU make does not try
to capture the output of the shell command and print it.  Thus, GNU make
cannot filter the output of the shell command.
