Regarding the, I don't see the benefit, either. If I didn't
know the concept how suckless-projects are organized in regard to their
makefiles, I would look at the Makefile first and probably not notice

Regarding including in general, take projects like 9base into
consideration, where each subdirectory includes standard build

I myself prefer a centralized make-system over a decentralized one with
includes, but I'm sure there are people around here who can give good
reasons for decentralizing this.
