given a makefile like the one below I can get
make afile.s to produce echo .s
however, if i remove the # i get the error message make: don't know how to make afile.s. Stop
why would making .s be impossible when .lo is a known suffix, without a rule?
this is a real question. i have a downloaded makefile that fails in a similar manner.
Best Wishes, Bengt
.SUFFIXES: .S .s
#.SUFFIXES: .S .s .lo
