Debugging makefiles

Hi all,

I've been frustrated too many times when trying to debug
a project (that i didn't write) with a problem in its
complicated recursive-into-subdirectories makefiles,
and associated addons/includes into the makefiles.

I was wondering how other developers go about it. Are there
any tools like an interactive makefile debugger? The gnu make
options seem too limited, and it can't even print line numbers
of the execution path thru makefiles.
