        Another solution, I don't know how plausible this is, is to modify 
the make sources. Add in an 'intelligent' parser which looks for the make 
command in the current line in the makefile, and simply recusrsively calls 
itself (maybe directly calling the main() function, problems with static 
variables though). This would not require the operating-system or go32 to 
hae to worry about swapping. Plus it would be a LOT faster. (No swapping out 
to disk.)
        Just my ideas......(It's probably been done, but by who????)

                        Martin.
