make -d is nice, but it's too verbose. Hacking pymake is nice, but it's slow.
I'm tempted to make it always display why something is rebuilt, but I'm not too sure about it. For now, it only does when REBUILD_CHECK is set.

This also changes the current output which is to display the source file, to display the target file, which, i think is better.

Nice.

I too lament the fact that make isn't hackable and pymake is too slow.
