[erlang-questions] make.erl vs ct_make.erl

Hi,

I just noticed that make.erl and ct_make.erl are almost identical. There
are a few things in each that aren't in the other, but it looks like it
should be possible to eliminate the duplication by merging everything to
make.erl.

One point to argue about is that the return value in case of error is
'error' for make and {error, Info} for ct_make. This could be addressed by
extending the API, so that users of make won't be affected.

Another point would be that the 'common_test' application now would depend
on 'tools'. Can this be a problem?

best regards,
Vlad
