I'm a little worried that you're focusing too much on make, which is just one
way to demonstrate the problems of process group abuse.

This simple shell script:

timeout 12 sleep 10

is also nonresponsive to ^C for the same reason as the original makefile.

Are you going to argue that the shell is doing something wrong there too?
