Hi Christian,

Thanks for your reply.

Issuing make cmd="dmake patch" seemed to behave similar to make.

~/libo-git$ make cmd="dmake patch"
*   Running the post download checks.
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
cd instsetoo_native && unset MAKEFLAGS && \
	/home/wmk26/libo-git/solenv/bin/build.pl -P1 --all -- -P1

(1/138) Building module solenv

I looked at Makefile and saw this bit

# custum command
ifneq ( $(MAKECMDGOALS),cmd)
        echo "custum cmd" && ( $(cmd) )


So I tried

~/libo-git$ make cmd cmd="dmake patch"
echo "custum cmd" && ( dmake patch )
custum cmd
dmake:  Error: -- Don't know how to make `patch'
make: *** [cmd] Error 255

Am I on the right track? How do I target only one module?
