Hrm. This doesn't seem to work well with -Otarget where make puts a pipe
between the recipe and the terminal (breaking ncurses applications in
recipes). It'd be nice if make had something like ninja's console pool
to indicate that it needs to 1) not run in parallel with any other
targets and 2) exclusive terminal access.

Time to go file an RFE I suppose.
