Sure, but I bet lhs2TeX does a better job for Haskell/lambda calculus, 
indeed one can also execute the TeX files as in literate programming, 
so a TeX file serves both as source code and documentation.

I do not understand this set -o verbose business. Where should I add 
that? However, pwd I added to the Makefile and it did not show anything 
at all other than the aforementioned error message, and it lead me to 
thinking that Make.engine contains the "make" line. But I do not pass 
the command-line argument further to make with $*. However, if -- I 
fail to see why it could! -- make gets the file thesis.tex as an 

   make thesis.tex

then my Makefile would fail since it accepts targets such as 
pdf,dvi,safe,show,print only. Also the error message is -- maybe -- 
consistent with this hypothesis?

Finally, as a side-order probably out of scope of this list, can I pass 
thesis.tex to my Makefile like this "make pdf thesis.tex" instead of 
having the FILE=thesis.tex declaration inside my Makefile?
