Make dry run

make has an great option to validate the commands you want to run without executing them. For that just use --dry-run.

#!make
PHONY: test
test:
    echo "running something"

Then:

$ make test --dry-run
echo "running something"
$ make test
echo "running something"
running something

Thanks @DillonHafer for that tip!
