Can't you get that effect with something like MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=./ in
the environment?  I'd certainly prefer that people who want make to
chdir around behind their back have to ask for it explicitly; see my PR
23821, which Luke closed when ie fixed this, which outlined a case
where it bit me rather badly.  (I've been tempted to reopen the PR so
it doesn't get forgotten, now that Luke's backed out the commit, but
haven't bothered yet.)
