Sure it does. Look at main.c:1491; what makes you think it won't change

The difference between "make -r" and setting those two in the makefile
is that in the first case make sets .SUFFIXES to "" and does not add
any suffix rules. In the second case make does set .SUFFIXES and does
add suffix rules before makefile is read but, since I set .SUFFIXES 
to "", make does not convert_to_pattern. I think that's why you see 
different output. The 'logical' result is the same however.
