remake - GNU Make with comprehensible tracing, profiling, extended error messages, and a debugger

remake is a fork of and extends GNU Make. It adds, profiling, comprehensible tracing, extended error messages and a debugger

Although debugging GNU Makefiles is a little different than debugging, procedure-oriented programming languages, this debugger tries similar to other trepanning debuggers and gdb in general. So knowledge gained by learning this is transferable to those debuggers and vice versa.

An Emacs interface is available via realgud.
