[Top 10] compile: Suspicious line. Save anyway? [runs anyway]

Here's a real professional style bug.
If you put a TAB at the end of a makefile, M-x compile will ask
        Suspicious line 4. Save anyway (y or n)
well of course the user will answer n do he can check and correct
whatever Suspicious thing is going on.

So he answers n... Oh, but the compile command then blunders on do a
make with an unsaved or old makefile... real schmart. Top 10 for this

$ emacs makefile
a : RET TAB d a t e RET b : RET TAB ESC x c o m p i 
l e RET RET y n C-h l

If the bolt has already fallen out then the roller coaster ride should
not then depart anyway before repairs can be made.
