It would be nice if a Makefile displayed in the
Explorer were displayed with its targets as children
(similar to how classes are shown as children of a
Java file). If the parent node were selected then
the default Makefile target should be run unless
overridden via property). If a specific target is
selected then that target should be run.

Or Makefile targets should be displayed in Navigator tab
Mostly done. After changeset http://hg.netbeans.org/cnd-main/rev/1313c7614cea you can see makefile targets in the navigator and even go to source on double-click.
Will also add ability to run target soon.
"Run Target" submenu in Makefile context menu now lists targets extracted from the makefile.
