Funnily enough I was just looking at that last night (when I was
supposed to be revising). Just did a little playing with -MD -E type
stuff. I was contemplating doing a bit of a rewrite of the linux make
files, once I'm through this set of exams.

I'd like to get rid of the recursive make calls too, it's not good
practise. For one thing when part of the build fails the overall make
doesn't fail, which is not ideal for automated package building.
