Yeah, traditional way to do this is to give special markers around
what you want your Makefile to tell you, e.g.
echo "@@@ $(FOO) ###"
$(MAKE) sayit | \
sed -ne 's/^@@@ \(.*\) ###$/\1/p' | \
... use it ...
but in this case we know we want "*.txt", so the way you filtered
the output is sufficient.

Yay, maintainability comes with a large line reduction bonus ;-)
