MAKEFLAGS and MFLAGS are already exported by make (${MAKE} is magic
methinks), so they need no explicit passing. You can check this by
adding something like 'echo ${MAKEFLAGS}' to the lib/Makefile
libnetlink.a target and then invoking e.g. `make -r` from the
toplevel, and notice how -r shows up again in the submake.
