I can not easily find that I need to use either .INTERMEDIATE or
.SECONDARY from the table of content below.
However, when I type 'gnu make dele' in google, it pops up 'gnu make
delete intermediate'. If I search by this term, it points me to the
section on .INTERMEDIATE or .SECONDARY, which is helpful.
