I have long-term plans for getting make to go faster, but don't hold
your breath; it requires rewriting about 80% of the internals so it
parses to an intermediate form; this will make it probably 2-3x faster
up front (by avoiding repeated rescanning of strings) and also allow
teaching it some optimizations.
