Is there a discussion archive or some log of that attempt and the problems you ran into ? I shamelessly stole the musl Makefile's design to use in my software - I hardly knew the make language at the time, and wanted to study a small and clean case - and was considering implementing out-of-tree builds at some point in the (distant) future. If there were some notes describing the obstacles you faced, it would help me when I get to it - or more likely convince me, like it apparently convinced you, that it's just not worth it. -- Laurent
