So what you should see is that the 'make' execution in the 'daemon' directory did error and stop running, but the top level make kept running the other directories make tasks (for example in 'examples' (as they may have file dependancies on specific files in other directories, but no dependency on the previous make executions being error-free.

If you do not see any error in the console output for the daemon directory when you look back, please send that output and I'll figure out what's going on.

It wasn't the way the project evolved and it's nice to keep separate components easily buildable separately (I know that's still possible with integrated makefiles but it is more complex).
