This is exactly how the xwp repo does NLVs. It's a style I prefer. A
project that insists on doing everything from a single top-level makefile
is probably a project I'm not terribly interested in working on.
When I need to make a small change to some file in some subdirectory, I
prefer to be able to drop into the directory and type make and be done
with it. I don't care to be forced to wait for a top-level make file to
figure out that 99% of the code does not need to be rebuilt.
This is my preference as well.
