You are not really 'calling' the makefile, you are including a file of
definitions such as
BUILD_ID="blah blah"

This file is created by buildtarget.
By using an include file, you avoid having to actually change the
makefile. This is pretty flexible.

It's not one function, it's one variable define.

But, yes, this does nicely set us up for handling other future distro
and gnu toolchain issues.
