5 Subdirectories

You may have felt that the rules presented in the previous section were rather arbitrary. Instances of the same type are built in parallel, while instances of different types are not. What if you need something different ?

gnustep-make 2.4.0 introduces two new makefile fragments (serial-subdirectories.make and parallel-subdirectories.make) that allows you to have total control on the order and the parallelization in which instances are built. We will refer to them as the ``subdirectories'' makefiles. They are meant to replace the traditional aggregate.make in the long-term.
