Please include an ability to cleanly override any target so make does
not emit warnings about overwritten target. There are a few ways to do
it, but I find this the easiest: prefix every target in erlang.mk with
a variable:

$(.erlang-mk-all)all:
  <your stuff>

That way, if $(.erlang-mk-all) is defined (from my application
Makefile before including erlang.mk), your 'all' target will be the
one that does not cause me warnings.
