I'm engaged in writing Makefiles both of open source projects and
commercial products (which are quite different). Currently working on
porting a product build system with some x00.000 sources and x.000
Makefiles to GNU make using the non-recursive approach ...

My understanding is that Makefiles from different authors tend to be
much more different than for example C sources from different authors.
I believe that the main reason for this is that most programmers don't
see Makefiles as real programs that need to be "cool", "clean" or
whatever but just need to work.

As a result I don't see any point in discussing Makefile style or
"standards". The cc65 Makefiles are a good example: If I would have
done them they'd look very different, so when dealing with Makefiles
it's about adapting your perspective to the predominant style found -
at least if your task isn't to rewrite them from scratch ;-)

Just my two cents, Oliver
