if ticks2 were really reloaded then make2 would not have a blank value for $(TICKS)

OK, I think I'm starting to understand what you want to do. Have you tried doing the "include make2" inside tick2?

Absolutely. That's what the original example did, creates 'x' which has within it an include y, which also produces y...
