Hey Martin, sorry for the delay when it came to posting this patch.

No problem Alfred, and thanks!

Here is a small patch that adds a new option to make that causes make
to abort after N failures.  Martin suggest that -k should take an
extra argument where the user can tell make to abort after N failures,
quite useful if you want are running a build robot, or similar.

I find calling it "keep_going_count" confusing, hence I would suggest "abort_at_err_count", because it would be more descriptive of what it is meant to do: abort the build process when the number targets that could not be built reaches a certain count.
