Follow-up Comment #14, bug #30381 (project make):

I don't think it's correct to implement this feature using a command-line
option.  Makefiles need to be written in a certain way to use this feature and
if they are written that way, then you must have the feature enabled or the
build will fail.  And vice versa.

For situations like that we don't want to force the user to have to specify
options on the command line: these options need to be set within the makefile
so the makefile author controls them.  Also it's not clear that having the
flag on the command line, where it will be passed recursively to sub-makes,
won't break those sub-makes in some situations.
