have BSD make pass all arguments to GNU make?

In shell, if I call a script "foo", i can pass all the arguments to a
script "bar" like this:

*bar $**

I would like to do something similar with make.

If I call BSD make with some target, I'd like to rerun it on a GnuMakefile,
something like this:

*gmake $**

Obviously this doesn't work because (I think) make doesn't have the notion
of $*.

But is something like this possible?

(I'd rather not alias make to gmake, in case you were wondering, my system
uses  both makes in various places.)
