That involves patching makefiles that work on every? other
system I've seen.

Wouldn't it have been better to require a .OBJDIR (or similar)
command in the makefile itself to enable this 'feature'?

I've also used ${@F:.o=.c} with SYSV make to put object files
into subdirectories.  Did have to fix the parseing of $${@F:.o=.c}
first though...
