Right, thanks. Using regular Makefiles with mmc --make would be quite 
strange, I think.

The Makefile would not be aware of the dependencies, so it would be 
something like this:

	mmc --make myprogram

But if you had generated source files that mmc --make was not aware of, 
you would have to do something like this:

myprogram: *.m
	mmc --make myprogram

%.m : %.moo
	moose -u $< > $@

Makes some sense I guess, as make can at least check whether generated 
files need to be rebuilt.
