whether make or the manual on make, a hole this big is a bug

Recursive make should work well.
If top and subdir makefiles both have rules named 'clean' that do different 
things, that should be fine with make.
Whether I make clean or make target, make warns me that it has a duplicate rule 
'clean' and is overriding the rule for 'clean'. 
likewise for 'all'.
I want a means to tell make that I KNOW THERE IS A DUPLICATE RULE FOR CLEAN! 
just do it quietly please.

Reading The Gnu Make Manual has not helped me in this, so either the manual or 
make have a hole in them.

Kindly advise.
