You should always, always use $(MAKE) in your rules to invoke a sub-make,
NEVER plain "make".

There's nothing illegal about && from the make parser side.  In fact, make
doesn't do any parsing whatsoever of command lines other than expanding
variables: it just passes everything to the shell and lets the shell sort
it out.
