This is true in the Windows src/gnuwin32/Makefile, but it's not new.
The only target that depends on "recommended" is "distribution", and it
does it by forcing "make recommended" every time, whether needed or not.
"make all" also misses "bitmapdll" (which I think has no equivalent in
Unix?), "manuals" (part of "docs" in Unix), and installer related targets.
It would probably be reasonable if "make all" were more consistent
across platforms, but "make recommended" is quite slow, so I'm not sure
I would like it to be in the default ("all" is the default target).
Another argument in favour of including "recommended" in the default is
that currently "make ; make check" fails in Windows, because some of the
checks depend on recommended packages.
