Well, possibly, but I think you'll have to say a great deal more about
what "for" means in the various contexts. For example, a library
required by a module has to link in to all modules, so I can't see the
difference between Libs, ModuleLibs and TargetLibs. I find it difficult
to imagine a use for SupportCFLAGS. And so on.
