Consider and IDL to C++ mapping:

SUFFIXES = .idl C.cpp C.h S.cpp S.h

Where Foo.idl is mapped into client stubs FooC.h etc.

By the rule:

        # do whatever

You abosolutely do need the SUFFIXES declaration, otherwise you end up
with a .idlC to .cpp mapper.

Thus honoring SUFFIXES if found is actually quite important...
