How can I query prerequisites of a target from a GNU Make makefile?
E.g. if the targets specified like this:
fred: wilma barney betty
I want to print prerequisites of
fred like this:
$ make some_action fred wilma barney betty

So it will not give you a direct list, but a indirect list since you know that he would like to execute what he depends on.
