So I think we could do it even without patching gnumake ;-)  I'd just
increment a global variable in in every gb_LinkTarget_add_*
(solenv/gbuild/LinkTarget.mk) - that way we'd get the sum of how many
'things' to do; and then the progress would be tracked in
gb_Output_announce (solenv/gbuild/Output.mk), by incrementing another

Most probably it wouldn't be 100% precise, but good enough for zenity?
