There is a Makefile there, and of course it can detect these things if
we want it to.  If there is no Makefile there, then nobody has said
"make" before, and in that case, things will work fine.

For instance, if you check in "make"-breaking changes, then you could
also check in something that has the necessary commands to make "make"
work again.  We just have to establish some kind of mechanism -- for
instance, a special directive in the commit message?  Or something else.
