Tangled tree of Makefiles ? Other than the examples, there are very few Makefiles. I've played with the single top level Makefile idea before, and it is faster. Whether it's more maintainable or not I think is personal opinion. I don't have any motivation to make this change myself, but if somebody else did, I probably wouldn't gripe when it came time to check it in. Most of the DejaGnu Makefiles are pretty simple.

Just as a question, what other projects ? I haven't downloaded a single free software package using this technique, so I'm curious.
