sub-makes that do nothing.
The main advantage with sub-makes over a single top level make file is that you can only do builds from the top level. With sub-makes, you can build just one subdirectory. I'd debate whether the examples should all have sub-makes so they can be built standalone, and the rest can build from the top level. I've found that the one top level make works well for libraries. but not for applications. DejaGnu is neither, since it doesn't compile any C/C++ code.
