I would like to second this - would love to be able to add string lowercase (with good performance) and md5sum and $(equals a,b) and some kind of integer arithmetic functions. This is without the penalty of having to provide a custom version of GNU make.

A nice feature would be to have a a dynamic plugin based architecture,for user based functions.

An example is that a command line argument can cause the load of a library at runtime, say a .so file, with predefined structure.

The plugin can now export to make a list of functions that it provides, which will be available in gnu-make as built in functions.

This should not be very difficult to implement too (i guess :) ), but the possibilities it creates are really enormous.
