When building large Packages I find it hard to find out which variable contains a not working commandline switch.

For example if gcc errors out due to a wrong commandline option, I find it hard to figure out where that option came from.

So I wrote a patch for make to add

-x, --print-unexp-cmd
            Print commandline without expanding variables

to make's options.
