Ah, right, good idea.  Btw. funnily I can't reproduce the effect of the
deferred output on one of the machines even with your makefile.  The child
is left running, but the echo "ok done" is missing, probably because the
parent make is done, and hence can't execute further commands of the list.  
So to make it even more reproducable one should simply make the sleep and 
the "echo" be one command, then it's guaranteed to be form disturbing 
output in the prompt :)  Ala:

        @sleep 4; echo ok done
