make checks output of the command it issues, in this case the shell that runs
the for loop, since the for loop has no error checking make does not complain.
If you want make to exit you should either recode the for loop or do something
like this:

--- --- --- --- --- ---
all: $(SUBDIRS)

$(SUBDIRS): dummy
    $(MAKE) -C $@

dummy:
--- --- --- --- --- ---
