I don't have a problem with that.

Others might though for whatever reason.

There are a couple other places in the tree that
also use subdir-ccflags where the results of making
a subdirectory would either fail or have unexpected
results.

Does it matter?  Not much, but it could be nicer if
it's possible for parent Makefile paths to be ascended.

I'm not much of a Makefile person, but perhaps you have
some clues/tips/suggestions for implementation?
