I don't think we should pass arbitrary MAKEFLAGS through,
since certain settings are set internally, and I'm concerned
that MAKEFLAGS set in the environment could cause difficult to
diagnose failures.

That doesn't prevent us considering a separate control
to explicitly enable the "make -k" behaviour that you desire.

I would have suggested " -k", but that flag is already
used (to warn about deprecated behaviour).  I am going to
remove the deprecated warnings for -b, -d, -i, -k, -t, since
the "new way" for those operations has been in place since
before NetBSD 2.0.  Then we might be able to use -k in
for the purpose.
