The question is, what if I am fiddling with some feature and want to do a
minor change to see if that fixes the problem. I shouldn't be made to do a
complete recompile just because I made one single minor change.
If you don't agree, you are ruining the pleasure of makefiles.
Yes, having that could be a trouble but having root allowed to do a `rm
- -rf /` is also a problem.
A --force or --clean-all option should be there. That's just my opinion.
