Making recursive make verbose

Running recursive make (Makefiles that visit other directories and call make there recursively), if you want all the makes to be more verbose, define an environmental variable VERBOSE=1 on the shell (at least works with bash syntax, I am not sure of other shells) line calling make:

VERBOSE=1 make
make VERBOSE=1
