I found the following closely-related suggestion in the Make manual.

Any ideas how we could do that?

I've seen the following idea somewhere:


.PHONY: $(addsuffix -foo, $(SUBDIRS)):

$(addsuffix -foo, $(SUBDIRS)):
$(MAKE) -C `echo $@ | sed 's/-.*$//'` `echo $@ | sed 's/^.*-//'`

Cute. And wonderfully cryptic. I'm sure I've lost brain cells already just trying to understand it ;-)
