Why bother reporting if it gets ignored? There was no reply to say why it was going to be left broken either…
Probably the best solution is to implement a “make dep=1” option or I prefer a SINCLUDE= in each Makefile that can be used in the appropriate rules in common.mk. I am commenting for Linux only - don’t know how it is set up on Windows.
I think there should be another general makefile that does everything in one directory, producing the various targets with different extensions. Much easier for a lot of people here. I certainly had to decipher common.mk to work out what was required for such a makefile and I am sure others have too.
