It doesn't work because it's not legal to create a pattern rule that

rule, but rather create some kind of pattern-matched prerequisite
definition.  GNU make doesn't support that feature.

In the GNU make manual you'll see that a pattern rule that has no recipe
is defined to delete that rule.

Thank you for the very helpful response and explanation.
