This file describes the way Joel uses make.

My recommendation: Unless you are building inside of the source-tree,
write your Makefiles like you would write them for any arbitrary
application. Use the tools you want to use and use the style you want to
write them.

To me, RTEMS Makefile fragments are less than helpful ;)
