I've been taking a look at this in my limited free time, so I might as
well publicly register my interest here. Moving to non-recursive Make
will probably be quite a bit of work/pain, but I also think it's
probably worth it in the end.

(We make heavy use of automated builds, and having a complete
dependency graph should speed those up considerably, in addition to
the maintenance benefits already implied here.)
