  a couple more questions about gnu make -- i apologize for having a non-
specific subject since there's more than one question.

1) what is the recommended style for defining phony targets, as in, where
   does one actually define them?  all at once at the top of the makefile, or
   one by one as they are defined?

   .PHONY: target1 target2 target3 ... and so on

   or should one pair them up as they occur, as in:

   .PHONY: clean
         ... commands ...

   lile i said, it's just a style question.

2) what's the technical definition of an "implicit" rule?  does this include 
   the internal suffix rules and any user-defined pattern rules, as the make 
   manual seems to suggest?

   and is there a run-time option to list all internal suffix rules that come 
   gnu make?
