Allow C++ makefile projects to compile single files

With normal Visual C++ projects, there's an option in the build menu to compile an individual file. This can be very useful for many reasons I shan't go into here.

When using makefile projects, this option can't be used - building is limited to the 'build', 'rebuild' and 'clean' commands that can be specified in the project options.

I would like there to be another 'compile file' command which can call the external build tool with the file path as an argument, or perhaps that file path could be substituted into the command somehow.
