Oh, that was a real 'btw' side note; I meant the usual
... || ( $(RM) $@ && exit 1 ) stanzas, which we have to keep
repeating all to often. I skimmed through the compatibility
section in the make manual but found no portability issues
with respect to this special target. An overlook, probably.
Back to the topic: my main point is that the situation is
best expressed by a Makefile and solved by make. Best as
opposed to verbosity and complexity. I suppose this is also
a fairly workable scheme for those who build the winetest
packages while being transparent for others. And still a
very straightforward application of make. I can't really
see sane way to do all of this in maketest without
triggering superfluous relinks all the time; maybe I miss
