I found Paul's explanation to be very insightful and useful.  With
this method and a little extra help from the nice folks on this list,
I was able to create a very generic Makefile that I've used to build
every homework assignment since I wrote it.  In school, we often move
from one little project to the next very quickly.  Writing Makefiles
for each one can be a pain and graders don't want an autotooled

In case it helps, Angel, my generic Makefile can be found at 
Improvements and suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
