I don't know, mainly because I can see both approaches as being useful
to people.  In it's simplest form just re-working the shell script may
be enough, and obviously offers us a lot more flexibility than
Makefiles.  On the flip side Makefiles mean just typing `make` and
having something build.  I'm happy to entertain both approaches, and if
a student is feeling particularly adventurous it's possible to do both
with a little bit of planning.
