Make in erlang dose not handles errors in compilation.

If some files in application broken, compilation with erlc returns 1,
while erl -make returns 0 what indicates that compilation i
So, when we uses Makefile, where some targets should been compiled
with erl -make, and when one target compilation is broken, make cannot
catch this.

Thank you
