That's not really good enough though.  The presence of a GNU-make
extension _anywhere_ in the file means it's a GNU-makefile.

As GNU-make is upward compatibile with traditional make, this makes the
implementation easy:  just highlight GNU-make extensions by default, no
mode-setting or whatever is necessary.

The automobile has not merely taken over the street, it has dissolved the
living tissue of the city.  Its appetite for space is absolutely insatiable;
moving and parked, it devours urban land, leaving the buildings as mere islands
of habitable space in a sea of dangerous and ugly traffic.
