Another classic example of why makefiles are such a terrible idea. Why not
simply create a GUI and/or Console app that lists the options (maybe even
copy the "Tools > Build Lazarus" dialog. This tool must a able to compile
with 'fpc buildtool.pas'. The users can then simply run the tool, select
the option they want, and it fires off the correct build command with it's
110 parameter choices. Hide the complexities of Makefile - they are a
terrible idea under all circumstances.
