You mean this?

`-d'
     Print debugging information in addition to normal processing.  The
     debugging information says which files are being considered for
     remaking, which file-times are being compared and with what
     results, which files actually need to be remade, which implicit
     rules are considered and which are applied--everything interesting
     about how `make' decides what to do.  The `-d' option is
     equivalent to `--debug=a' (see below).

`--debug[=OPTIONS]'
     Print debugging information in addition to normal processing.
     Various levels and types of output can be chosen.  With no
     arguments, print the "basic" level of debugging.  Possible
     arguments are below; only the first character is considered, and
     values must be comma- or space-separated.
