    I could but not always since it can be passed to the command line.

    Again, I'd like to know how the makefile has been called the last time it run.

    Some flags can be passed and influence the rebuild process and I don't
    want my script to rebuild the whole kernel because my script doesn't
    invoke the makefile as the user (command line) did.

    For example, user did:

    $ make CC=distcc

    then call my script:

    $ my-script

    which in its turn does:

    $ make

    then the whole kernel is rebuilt..
