This happens when I try to name an object file "foo.o" instead

Can I get SMAKE to stop bugging me about my funny file names
and just do what I want?

Unfortunately, SMAKE has too many smarts and defaults in it. Try MAKE.

Does MAKE support recursive makes? I mean, can I call MAKE from inside a makefile? This is what I'm doing: MAKEFILE=dmars.mak LIBC =lib\libc.lib $(LIBC): lib\$(MAKEFILE) cd lib make -f $(MAKEFILE) cd .. but it seems to go into some kind of loop.

Yes. I do it routinely.
 This is what I'm doing:

 MAKEFILE=dmars.mak
 LIBC =lib\libc.lib

 $(LIBC): lib\$(MAKEFILE)
 cd lib
 make -f $(MAKEFILE)
 cd ..

 but it seems to go into some kind of loop.

The cd may not be working, so it may not pick up the makefile from the subdirectory.
