I agree with Cliff;

Calling the compiler directly eliminates possible bugs in Makefiles, false
dependencies, eliminates the need for make, and will work faster...

Not to mention that make gets totally confused if you have interdependency
of units.

You can use some makefile kind of project group (If you look at the project
group in Delphi, you'll see that it _IS_ a makefile); but I wouldn't put any
rules in it at all. Just some targets...
